Back in March,2022 police in Brandon responded a report of a fraudulent transaction at a business on 18th street.
The investigation has revealed that a suspect had earlier purchased items at the business. She then took the receipt from that purchase, went back to the business and selected the same items, placing them into a cart. She then took the selected items with the matching receipt and passed them off as actual purchases in order to obtain a refund.
Police were able to identify the suspect from security footage at the business.
On May 2, 2022, the 30-year-old female from Deloraine attended to Brandon Police Service to turn herself in on the charges.
Following her arrest, she was later released and will appear in court on June 27, 2022 on a charge of Fraud Under $5000.
