Police Nab Fraud Suspect Already In Custody For Unrelated Theft

Windsor Police Services saved themselves a little leg work after nabbing a suspect who was already in custody.

A 29-year-old Windsor woman was arrested at an apartment building in the 400 block of Glengarry Ave. for allegedly stealing from locked mailboxes on Tuesday.

The Financial Crimes Branch was investigating a separate incident involving a cheque book stolen from a local business — officers were able to positively identify the same woman after she attempted to cash the cheques in her name.

Police say she's been charged with individual counts of fraud, mischief and possession of stolen property under $5,000. She is also charged with mail theft, uttering a forged cheque, and breach of recognizance.
