39 year old Jaime Lynn Cox charged with five counts of fraud under $5,000
Police have now charged the girlfriend of a Victoria man who allegedly claimed to have lost everything in the Fort McMurray fire.
39 year old Jaime Lynn Cox, is charged with five counts of fraud under $5,000.
She is scheduled to appear in Fort MacLeod provincial court on June 1.
Darryl Rondeau, 45, has already pleaded guilty to the same charge.
Earlier this month Rondeau allegedly told people in Claresholm, Alberta that he and his girlfriend were left destitute by the Fort McMurray fire.
Locals pitched in to buy them clothes, give them free meals and put them up in an RV in the town’s campsite.
Police say the investigation is continuing and more charges will likely be laid.
Court records show Darryl Lincoln Rondeau, was convicted in March of possession of stolen property under $5,000 in Oak Bay.
A Facebook page says Rondeau is from Duncan but was living in Fort Mac.
