MRU #:17R089

The Edmonton Police Service has charged the former vice president of information technology of a local membership-based consumer organization for defrauding his employer.

In the fall of 2016 police received a report of fraud from the organization after employees reportedly discovered a series of fraudulent invoices.   

 

Following a thorough investigation by the Edmonton Police Service and assistance from the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada and Alberta Justice Specialized Prosecutions, officers determined more than $8 million in funds had allegedly been defrauded between March 2011 and June 2016.

 

On Friday, June 16, 2017, Jim Gladden, 38, turned himself in to police and was charged with fraud over $5,000, laundering proceeds of crime and use of a forged document (x5).
