A police hunt for a Blenheim, Ont. man accused of committing extensive bank fraud came to an end Monday afternoon when authorities arrested him in Chatham.

Chatham-Kent police say the man worked with his common-law partner, who was arrested for her role in the fraud last month, to scam their bank account for a total of $3,500. The man would disguise himself while using her bank card to purchase items. They then reported their bank deposit book, bank card and cheques stolen from their vehicle.

The 27-year-old man and 33-year-old woman each face 11 fraud charges, as well as additional counts for public mischief, uttering forged documents and wearing a disguise.
