The Ottawa Police Service West Criminal Investigations Unit and Crime Stoppers are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who was involved in identity fraud.

In August of 2017, the victim had their wallet stolen from their vehicle. During that time there was a bank account opened in their name, using their stolen ID’s. Later on, the victim became aware of the opened account when they received letters about bounced cheques. The suspect in the photo below is suspected of depositing the cheques.
