A Niagara Falls woman is facing charges following a fraud investigation at a law office.
Investigators were contacted in August about an alleged fraud and theft of $134,000 from a St. Catharines family law office.
Niagara Regional Police say a complainant became concerned that their trust fund and bank accounts had been compromised between Sept. 1, 2014 and June 27, 2019.
Police say they arrested a woman Tuesday and have charged her with fraud, uttering a forged document, the falsification of books, laundering the proceeds of crime, and criminal breach of trust.
Alicia MacKinnon, 34, was released on a promise to appear in court on Nov. 19.
