A St. Catharines, Ont. woman is facing fraud charges after police allege she ordered merchandise online using fraudulent information.

A north-end Guelph hardware store contacted police last month about a possible fraud case involving an online order.

On Sunday, police were alerted that someone was at the store to pick up that merchandise. Officers ended up arresting a woman at the store. Another man was allegedly involved in the incident but fled the scene on foot. He was later arrested by police.

A 24-year-old woman of St. Catharines was charged with fraud under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime.

A 31-year-old Etobicoke man faces a total of 12 different criminal charges, including obstructing police, resisting arrest, drug possession and other fraud-related offences.
