Teen Charged With Fraud in Corner Brook

An 18 year old man from Corner Brook has been arrested on charges of Fraud and Uttering a Forged Document.

The man was arrested after showing up to a Corner Brook business on two separate occasions with a personal cheque and attempted to cash the cheque.

The first employee did not cash the cheque at 11:00 am so he returned at 3:00 pm when another employee was working.

Police said that the cheque had been altered and had been written out to a different person.

It was also revealed that the male suspect failed to appear in court on November 22, 2017 for unrelated charges resulting in a warrant issued for his arrest.

He will appear in Provincial Court at a later date.
