May 25, 2018 (Courtesy of CBC.ca) – The Peel Regional Police Professional Standards Bureau charged a retired constable for fraud and laundering on Tuesday, after a nine month investigation.
Retired Const. Mark Androlia is charged with fraud over $5,000 and laundering proceeds of crime.
Androlia was an employee of Peel Regional Police for 40 years.
He was arrested and released and has a court hearing in Brampton on June 25, according to a press release.
An investigation was prompted by Chief Jennifer Evans, immediately after the allegations were revealed police say.
“We hold our employees to a higher standard and we expect them to be exemplary members of the community. These charges are of a serious nature and it is important for the community to know that these allegations do not reflect the good work being done each day by the 2,000 plus police officers within Peel Regional Police,” said Chief Evans in a press release.
