Two Quebec men are scheduled to appear in Provincial Court today on fraud-related charges following two incidents in Saskatoon.
At approximately 10:30 a.m., March 5, 2013, Police were called to a financial institution in the 400 block of Ludlow Street where a staff member reported that a man had attempted to withdraw a large sum of money. She became suspicious and called Police after he presented his identification. When officers arrived they located the suspect and another man outside the building. Upon further investigation it was found that the second man had attended to a financial institution in the 100 block of Primrose Drive earlier in the day, and had withdrawn cash using forged identification. A search of the men’s vehicle located several other pieces of forged identification.
A 54-year-old man from La Salle, Quebec, and a 25-year-old man from Montreal are both facing numerous fraud-related charges. Further charges may also be pending.
