Ontario police officer accused of working as Realtor while on duty
A York Regional Police constable is facing a fraud charge after police said he allegedly worked as a Realtor while he was supposed to be on duty.

He was arrested and charged with one count of fraud under $5,000.
On Tuesday, police identified him as 30-year-old Jamil Saade of Markham.
He is next scheduled to appear in court in Newmarket on Aug. 3.
Investigators say Saade has been a police officer for eight years.
