Mission fraud case becomes Crime Stoppers crime of the week

Local RCMP are asking for the public’s help to solve case involving the loss of almost $30,000

It’s been eight months since the Mission RCMP first asked for the public’s help to locate an alleged fraud suspect, and now the unsolved case has caught the attention of Crime Stoppers.

The Crime Stoppers ‘crime of the week’ beginning Sept. 8, involves a man suspected of multiple fraudulent transactions resulting in the loss of almost $30,000.

Police say the transactions happened at several banks located throughout the Lower Mainland and that the victim of the fraud had their passport stolen, in 2016.

The Mission RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the man from a surveillance photo.

If you recognize the male in the surveillance photo or have any information about this case, please contact the Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161.

If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca.

Crime Stoppers crime of the week is a weekly fan out service based on information provided by police investigators who need public assistance in making our communities safer by identifying individuals involved in committing crimes.
