Brockville Man Charged with Defrauding Kingston Bank over $4700

Release Date: February 12, 2018

17-15378

A 33-year-old Brockville man has been arrested after defrauding a Kingston bank of just over $4700 in the spring of 2017.

In May 2017 the Kingston Police Fraud unit began investigating the bank fraud. The account owner, a Brockville woman was identified, and with the assistance of Brockville Police the accused was identified through surveillance video.

The investigation revealed that the accused and the account holder had previously worked together and were involved in a relationship in 2016. In April 2017 the accused convinced the account holder he was not eligible to open a bank account due to his banking history. The account holder agreed to open an account at a bank in Kingston in her name on his behalf, so he could deposit work cheques. Unbeknownst to the account holder, the accused had stolen a book of her cheques and began depositing forged cheques into the new account. The accused also made multiple cash withdrawals and debit purchases against the new account. The total loss was stopped at just over $4700 when the account was frozen by the bank.

The accused whereabouts were unknown and a warrant was requested.

On February 10, 2018 Kingston Police picked up the accused who had been arrested by Brockville Police. The accused was transported to Kingston police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing.

The accused was charged with fraud, possession of stolen property, and utter forged documents.

Release Date: February 13, 2018

18-5446

A 29-year-old local man has been arrested after threatening his spouse with a knife during an altercation over her cellphone on two separate occasions.

On February 11, 2018 at approximately 7:00 p.m. the accused and the victim became involved in an altercation when the victim reached for his pocket, believing he had taken her cellphone. The accused responded by hitting her hands with his fists before grabbing a knife and making jabbing motions at her. When the accused eventually put the knife down he grabbed the victim by the throat before retreating to the basement. A short time later he came back up and head butted the victim, causing injury. He then tried to prevent her from fleeing the residence.

The incident was reported to police the following morning by the victim’s family. Further investigation revealed a similar incident earlier in the month. An argument over the accused taking the victims phone led to a physical altercation where the accused grabbed a knife. The accused then made a death threat while jabbing the knife towards the victim.

On February 12, 2018 at approximately 2:30 p.m. the accused was located at his residence and arrested. He was transported to police headquarters and held to attend a bail hearing the following day.

The accused was charged with three counts of assault, two counts of assault with a weapon, utter threats, and forcible confinement.
