Former Stony Plain Mountie charged with fraud, harassment

A former member of the RCMP in Stony Plain, Alta. is alleged to have repeatedly vandalized the home of one woman and damaged a vehicle owned by another while he was employed.

“Both women had been involved in prior relationships” with him, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team said in a news release Thursday.

ASIRT laid six criminal charges against the man after his latest arrest on Thursday.

He is charged with fraud over $5,000, obtaining by false pretense and uttering a forged document, RCMP confirmed in a separate news release. ASIRT said those offences relate to an application for RCMP relocation benefits.

Last October, he was charged with four other criminal offences including insurance fraud, theft and forgery after an investigation that had been initiated in February 2016. The officer was suspended from active duty Feb. 19, 2016.
