OPP union investigated for fraud, theft, it claims

A RCMP warrant executed at the headquarters of the Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) alleges there is evidence of criminal fraud, theft and laundering the proceeds of crime, the union has confirmed to its members.

In a “Blastout” (internal newsletter) to OPP officers Thursday, obtained by the Toronto Sun, the association advises the search warrant executed at its headquarters on March 6 makes a number of allegations of criminal wrongdoing.

The warrant alleges reasonable grounds to believe the Criminal Code offences of theft, breach of trust, fraud, laundering the proceeds of crime and fraudulent concealment have occurred, the Blastout says.
