Credit card fraud nets man 44 charges… and release

Durham Police said a 57-year-old male is facing 44 charges after investigators made a second arrest in a fraud investigation.

Members of the Financial Crimes Unit have made a second arrest in connection to the fraudulent use of a business credit card.

Over a period of approximately six weeks, the suspect used the credit card to fraudulently obtain more than $36,000 in purchases, said a police statement.

The suspect from Toronto was charged and released on an undertaking.

Anyone with new information about this investigation is asked to contact Det. Chapman of the Financial Crimes Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5352.
