Police in Truro have arrested a 34-year-old man from Bible Hill, N.S. following an investigation into fraud involving three local financial institutions.

In late November, police said that a local bank reported that fraudulent activity had occurred on the account of a deceased customer.

“The Truro Police Service Criminal Investigation Division investigated this complaint, gathered evidence, and executed several production orders that revealed that the fraud had occurred at three local banks.”

On Tuesday, Police reported that Jason Walter Ehler was arrested and has been charged with:

  •  11 counts of fraud;
  •  11 counts of forgery; and
  •  11 counts of false pretenses.

Ehler is scheduled to return to court on March 2.

The investigation is ongoing and nothing has been proven in court; however, police suspect that further charges will be laid.

Jason Ehler is the father of 3-year-old Dylan Ehler who disappeared from his grandmother’s backyard almost 19 months ago.

Despite extensive searches, only his boots were found.
