For the last 24 hours:

 

Identity Fraud, Forgery

On April 14, 2019, police received an initial report of a stolen cheque, deposited into a bank account.  Investigations over the following weeks revealed that a 37-year-old female used stolen identification to open up two bank accounts in the victim’s name.  The female suspect then took a stolen cheque from a second victim and deposited it into one of the fraudulently obtained bank accounts.  The victim learned of the fraudulently obtained bank accounts when a bank contacted her about depositing stolen cheques. Once being made aware that a fraud was occurring in her name, the victim was able to report to police.  Police arrested the suspect Wednesday afternoon.  She will be appearing in court today on charges of Possess Property Obtained by Crime, Identity Fraud, Fraud Under $5000 X 4, and Forgery X 24.

 

Break and Enter to Residence

Between 12:30 pm and 3:00 pm, Wednesday afternoon suspects broke into an east end residence.  The homeowner learned of the B&E from a neighbour who noticed a door left open.  Suspects stole stereo equipment including two Eclipse speakers, a Pioneer Elite receiver, two 12-inch Eclipse sub woofers, and one Eclipse speaker 3f83.  Anyone with information regarding this B&E is encouraged to contact Brandon Police Service.
