Niagara Regional Police say that officers began investigating a situation last November after they were contacted by a local dentist who suspected his General Manager was defrauding his Ridgeway dentistry practice.
As a result of their investigation, a St. Catharines woman is facing charges after allegedly defrauding her employer of over $554,000 and the NRP’s fraud unit put out a warrant for the suspect’s arrest.
Yesterday the suspect, 37 year old Jennifer Leslie, was arrested at the Rainbow Bridge crossing into Canada and is charged with fraud over $5,000 and laundering the proceeds of crime.
Leslie is being held in custody pending a bail hearing today, March 15 at the Robert S.K. Welch Courthouse in St. Catharines.
