Mr. NICK is facing five charges including Fraud, False Pretences, Identity Fraud and other related offences. Stettler RCMP have been granted an arrest warrant for Mr. Nick.
Stettler RCMP would like to thank the public for their assistance in identifying Mr. Nick, ultimately aiding in charges being laid against the person responsible for this crime.
If anyone has information on the current whereabouts of Mr. Nick, they are encouraged to contact the RCMP or Crimestoppers.
On June 2nd, 2017, a lone male attended the TD Canada Trust branches in Three Hills, Hanna and Stettler and attempted to fraudulently transfer money from a victim’s account to another. The male provided fraudulent ID in the name of an account holder and sought to have $18 000 transferred to another account under the premise that it was to be used to help his daughter purchase a vehicle.
Information about this Fraud attempt was forwarded to the Stettler RCMP in mid September after the branches worked together with their security personnel to provide a comprehensive package outlining the failed attempts.
If the public recognizes this individual, they are encouraged to call the Stettler RCMP directly or call Crimestoppers.
