The Supreme Court of British Columbia has issued a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of Loren Reagan after failing to show up for his hockey fraud trial Monday morning.
Reagan is charged with fraud over $5,000 and theft over $5,000. He is one of two men accused of a Okanagan fraud scheme involving a hockey association’s plan to send young hockey players to Europe.
The fundraising effort raised over $125,000 according to a Crown lawyer. The two accused men used unlicensed raffles and parent contributions, but no Europe trip ever happened.
