RCMP Seeking female suspect

Spruce Grove, Alberta: An Ontario woman is frustrated that a woman in the Spruce Grove area has used her identity to steal upwards of $70,000 from her bank account.

Spruce Grove/Stony Plain RCMP became aware of a woman who attended TD and Scotiabank locations in Spruce Grove and Stony Plain with forged identification in the name of this Ontario woman.  The suspect had somehow obtained the woman’s Social Insurance Number, and utilized it to obtain replacement photo identification.  The suspect has accessed the victim’s bank accounts and Line of Credit, in addition to making fraudulent purchases. Thus far, about $70,000.00 has been stolen!

Anyone with information that may assist the police in locating or identifying this woman is asked to call the Spruce Grove/Stony Plain RCMP at 780-968-7200 or 780-962-2222.
