Two people have been arrested and charged in a case of fraud spanning six years.
Police say $500,000 was taken from an Edmonton machinery equipment company between 2000 and 2006.
The investigation started in 2009, and used resources from across North America to track where the money went.
The suspects, one of them a former employee, allegedly used marketing and advertising funds, and sent them to their personal accounts. Police say a number of different methods were used, including creating false billings, fake identities, and making fraudulent payments and transfers.
46-year-old Mark Edward Vandenhouten and 43-year-old Sheryl Dawn Vandenhouten are facing fraud, theft, and laundering charges. (kdr)
