More bogus court papers
An apparent smear campaign targeting a business person continues, a month after a South Glengarry man was charged with mail fraud.
July 19 the Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police detachment was advised that new fraudulent documents are being circulated in the region and throughout Ontario. The documents are targeting one individual, that person’s associates and place of business.
If you have received such documents contact your local police agency. Reference OPP case number SP19110048.
The investigation began when the detachment was alerted by people who had received fake court documents along with fictitious sexual assault register documents.
The SD&G OPP Crime Unit has concluded that the papers contain false allegations. “Furthermore, any implication that business associates of the victim named in the documents are involved in any criminal activity in relation to these documents is also a fabrication,” the detachment reiterates.
The packages indicate the contents have originated from various police agencies, business and government agencies. The SD&G OPP, Cornwall Police Service, RCMP and Solicitor General's office confirm these documents did not originate within them.
Police agencies do not send documents to the general public stating that a person or persons have been convicted of any crimes.
The OPP Crime Unit continues working with the forensic identification unit.
In June, Ryan Flaro, 41, of South Glengarry was charged with two counts of criminal harassment, two counts of making forged documents, along with a charge of impersonating an officer and careless storage of a weapon. He was arrested after the SD&G OPP Crime Unit, the Emergency Response Team and SD&G OPP officers searched a property on County Road 2, South Glengarry Township.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call SD&G OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
