A five-month investigation has led Barrie, Ont. police to arrest a man in connection with a heating and air conditioning fraud.
A 27-year-old man has been arrested and charged with fraud over $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime.
In January 2017, Barrie Police Fraud Unit sought the public’s help in identifying a suspect responsible for defrauding a local furnace company using a fraudulent credit card. In February, a Barrie heating and air conditioning business was defrauded $50,000 after suspects fraudulently purchased thermostats, furnaces, air conditioning and water heaters.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and could result in more arrests.
