A 63 year-old Regina woman is facing a number of charges following a nearly seven-month long investigation by the Regina Police Service Commercial Crimes Unit.
On June 22, 2016, the Regina Police Service Commercial Crimes Unit received information alleging that an individual, in her capacity as a senior employee with a non-government human services agency, had defrauded the agency of funds. It’s alleged the offences occurred over a period between 2009 and June 22, 2016. Over the course of the seven month investigation, the primary investigator obtained the evidence necessary to support criminal charges against this individual. The female was taken into custody the evening of Friday, January 27, 2017, without incident. She will face four global charges. A global charge alleges numerous incidents of the same offence over an extended period of time.
