Kawartha Lakes police officer faces more charges

Additional criminal charges have been laid against a Kawartha Lakes Police officer after an investigation into drugs that police say went missing from an evidence locker last month.

Detective Constable Jeff Burke has been charged with two counts of fraud under $5000 and one count of breach of trust for allegedly defrauding pharmacies of prescription medication.

The accused has been suspended from duty while these charges are before the courts.
