Man, 45, charged with fraud and theft over $5,000.

Saskatoon police have charged a man with theft and fraud in connection with more than $1 million worth of stolen merchandise from his place of work.

The investigation began in June 2018 when they received a report from the business in the 2900 block of Idylwyld Dr. N.

The report disclosed that an employee stole merchandise and sold it for personal profit. It’s alleged that $1.1 million worth of items were stolen over a five year period.

The 45-year-old man accused of the crime turned himself in to the police Tuesday.

His first court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 9.

Information about the name the man or the business was not disclosed by police.
