Fraud – Belleville, Ontario

Members of the Belleville Police Service Criminal Investigations Division have arrested and charged two city men with fraud following an investigation into what was reported as a break and enter to a waterfront business on Dundas Street West late last year.

Belleville police officers were called to a business known as ‘The Cove' located at 25 Dundas St. W., for a reported break and enter in early October 2012. An investigation later deemed the incident to be unfounded as a break and enter.

Both parties have been released from custody with court dates in March 2013.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det.-Const. Jeremy Ashley at 613-966-0882 ext. 2315 or Crime Stoppers at 613-969-8477.
