Bank Fraud Leads to Charges
An Oshawa male was arrested Tuesday after someone tried to cash a large cheque at a Guelph bank.
Just before 3 p.m., police were called to a bank in the south end where the manager was suspicious of a male attempting to cash a cheque for more than $45,000. Officers responded and located the male in the parking lot.
He provided identity documents later determined to be fake. The male was arrested and a small quantity of suspected crystal methamphetamine was located.
A 31-year-old Oshawa male is charged with fraud over $5,000, obstructing police, possessing identity documents, uttering a forged document and possessing a controlled substance. He will appear in a Guelph court June 30, 2023.
