OAKVILLE  – Police say a registered practical nurse at a health care facility in Halton Region is facing a dozen new fraud-related charges.

Halton police say a woman who was a patient at the facility where the accused was employed had her identity and credit cards compromised in January 2013.

Police say the information came to light after the accused was investigated for similar acts at another facility.

The accused, who was out on a bail for 52 criminal charges, was arrested and charged on Wednesday.

The new charges against Victor Manzo include possession of credit card data, use of credit card data, attempted fraud, and identity theft.
