PARRY SOUND, Ont. – Ontario Provincial Police say a 48-year-old librarian has been arrested in British Columbia and returned to Parry Sound to face fraud-related charges.

Police say an investigation that began in November 2012 determined that Richard Sulkers, chief executive officer of the Parry Sound library at the time, allegedly used a corporate credit card for personal purchases in excess of $41,000.

Investigators say Sulkers was charged with 12 counts including criminal breach of trust, fraud, theft and uttering forged documents.

Police say he failed to appear for a court date, and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

Investigators say the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested Sulkers on Tuesday in Surrey, B.C., and OPP brought him back to Ontario to appear in Parry Sound court on Friday.
