Two people are facing 141 charges connected to a two-year investigation into a fraudulent lifestyle at a Hamilton-area residence.
Hamilton Police’s Major Fraud unit raided an east mountain home on Jan. 16. A large number of I.D. bank cards and property were seized.
The raid was the second search by the fraud unit, which made a previous visit in March of 2019 and seized similar fraudulent property.
Bobbi-Jo Reichheld, 34, and Joshua Virag, 31, were arrested last Thursday and are facing a combined 141 charges related to identity theft and fraud.
Police have identified about 100 victims who’ve suffered financial loss as a result of the misrepresentation.
Anyone who may have had contact with Reichheld or Virag or had a bank account or credit card compromised are asked to call Hamilton police at 905-546-4603.
