Lethbridge, Alberta police have charged a 36-year-old man in connection with a $500,000 fraud scheme.

An investigation into Schwartz Reliance Insurance Brokers determined that Stephan James Evanson, a partner at the firm, had created fake accounts and altered existing accounts in order to generate higher commissions for his own personal gain.

Evanson allegedly defrauded the business of $540,300. Police say no clients were directly impacted or suffered any losses from the crime and Schwartz Reliance was the sole victim.

Evanson, of Stirling, is charged with fraud over $5000 and money laundering after police responded to reports of fraudulent activity in October 2016.
