Fraudster busted

Kelowna RCMP and Edmonton police have made an arrest with a Kelowna connection.

A 27-year-old woman, employed as a bookkeeper, has been charged with fraud after an Edmonton realty and property management company suffered losses totalling approximately $275,000.

The investigation by Edmonton Police Services dates back to June 2015, after police received a report from an Edmonton business regarding an alleged fraud. Between December 2014 and June 2015, the accused reportedly used knowledge obtained from her position as a bookkeeper at the business to intercept monthly rent payments sent via Interac e-transfer to the company account, then transferred the funds to her personal account.

Following a thorough investigation by the EPS Fraud Investigations Unit, Megan Weistra, 27, was arrested on July 3, 2018, by RCMP in Kelowna, BC, and has been charged with fraud over $5000, producing a false document and breach of probation order.

Police believe that Weistra may have defrauded other organizations and are releasing her photo to encourage any additional complainants to come forward.

Weistra may also be known as Megan O’Gorman.
