Police say 33-year-old Norfolk man stole ‘thousands of dollars’.

Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) says the former treasurer of a youth soccer club in Norfolk county has been charged with fraud of over $5,000.

OPP said it received a complaint from the club about the 33-year-old Norfolk County man in February 2023. 

“Thousands of dollars were obtained fraudulently,” Const. Ed Sandchuk told CBC Hamilton.

The man was arrested without incident on March 3, 2023, according to the Norfolk OPP crime unit, and charged with criminal breach of trust, obtaining over $5,000 through fraudulent means and using deals and acts with a forged document.

Sandchuk told CBC Hamilton police could not say if the accused man had affiliations with other sports clubs.

The man is set to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in the Town of Simcoe at a later date, according to police.
