Trial Set for Quebec Man Arrested in Lethbridge on Fraud and Identity Theft Charges

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: One of the three Quebec residents arrested in Lethbridge last October on fraud and identity theft charges is headed to trial this summer.

 

Sylvain Boutros entered a plea of not guilty Wednesday morning and a trial date was set for July 31st.

 

October 25th Regional Police were called to a bank along Mayor Magrath Drive South in regards to a suspicious transaction. They reported that a woman had entered the bank that day claiming she had lost her bank card and was given a temporary one. An hour later she came back asking for a large sum of money, which made staff suspicious, and they were able to confirm that she was not who she claimed to be. The woman left th bank and was taken into custody by police, along with two men waiting at a vehicle.

 

An investigation turned up a trail of fraud in Calgary, Cochrane, Medicine Hat, Olds Didsbury and Airdrie. In each community the three are accused of using forged bank cards from the accounts of victims whose identities they had stolen, stealing more than $88,000.

 

Co-accused Johnson Egalite and Priscilla Chalifoux had simply had their matters adjourned.
