Two men charged in Ont.

Provincial police say two men have been charged with allegedly defrauding a northeastern Ontario town of about $800,000.

Police allege the town of Kapuskasing, Ont., which has a population of about 8,000, was being defrauded between September 2014 and February 2015.

Police say one of the subjects of the investigation, which began in June 2017, was the owner of a solar panel company contracted by the town.

A man from Napanee, Ont., is charged with fraud over $5,000.

A Crysler, Ont., man faces the same charge, along with one count of breach of trust by a public officer.

The men are scheduled to appear in court in March.
