Durham Regional Police say two suspects are facing charges in connection with fraudulent gift card transactions.
In a news release issued Wednesday, police said that in 2019, a retail corporation reported several frauds in its stores that resulted in more than $200,000 in fraudulent returns.
Investigators identified two suspects and on Tuesday, officers executed a search warrant at their home on Westport Drive in Whitby, police said.
Officers allegedly seized $30,000 in property and $20,000 in gift cards belonging to the retail company, which police did not name.
Shane Fullwood and Julianna Talevski, both 29 years old, face numerous charges including fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of proceeds obtained by crime over $5,000, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and money laundering.
Police said they were released on undertakings.
