A pair of former Brock Township residents have been charged following an alleged fraud related to an aggregate facility.
According to the DRPS, a “lengthy” investigation concluded last week involving fraudulent activity of an employee at an aggregate facility.
“It is alleged, the male suspect, who was an employee, provided aggregate material to a construction company and another aggregate operation. Fraudulent invoices were provided to these companies for the sale of the material,” reads a media release.
“Payment was collected by the male suspect and deposited directly into a bank account held jointly with the female suspect.”
These funds were used to purchase and renovate at least one residence in Durham Region, police say.
“Over $2 million was acquired by both of the accused parties between late 2016 through early 2021,” reads a media release.
“It is believed the fraudulent activity was limited to the aggregate operation.”
Jamie Showers, 44, was charged with fraud over $5,000; launder proceeds of crime; possession of property obtained by crime; utter forged document and drawing document without authority.
Michelle Langdon, 43, has been charged with fraud over $5,000; launder proceeds of crime and possession of property obtained by crime.
Both of the accused parties were released on undertakings.
The pair, who now live in York Region, used to live in the Sunderland area.
