A southern Alberta RCMP officer has been charged with fraud after misappropriating funds from a local charity from October 2015 to November 2016.
Following an investigation Const. Sean Taylor and Cori Taylor have been charged with possession of property obtained by a crime of over $5,000. The pair are accused of taking funds from “Whoo’s Crew,” a parental fundraising committee for Crossfield Elementary School.
Constable Taylor, who has been with the force for 12 years, was suspended from duty in June with pay. In addition to the fraud charges Constable Taylor has been charged with one count of uttering a forged document, one count of fraud over $5,000, five counts of fraud under $5,000, three counts of forgery and one count of using false pretenses to obtain credit over $5,000.
