West Islander busted for ID theft after leaving phony cards behind at an Airbnb apartment
A West Island man faces charges of identity theft after an Airbnb host in Regina, Sask. found several pieces of identification with the same photo in his rental property, but with different names and addresses.
Police say the guest was to have left last Thursday and the landlord made the discovery while cleaning the place and called police.
While waiting for officers to arrive, the landlord saw the man trying to gain entry to the property and he was arrested when the officers got there.
Investigators have reached out to notify the victims, whom they they believe to be from across Canada.
Mohamed Camara of Kirkland is charged with five counts of identity theft, possession of forged documents with intent and fraud under five-thousand dollars.
