A St. Catharines woman has been charged with allegedly defrauding a dental business for more than half a million dollars.
Jennifer Leslie, 37, who was general manager of a Ridgeway dental practice, allegedly took her owner for $554,000 between December 2014 and November 2017.
The owner of the dental practice advised police of the fraud in November and after investigation by a fraud unit, a warrant was issued for Leslie’s arrest.
Leslie was arrested at the Rainbow Bridge crossing into Canada on Wednesday.
She is charged with the alleged offences of fraud over $5,000 and laundering proceeds of crime.
Police did not say where she is alleged to have laundered the money.
Leslie was held in custody pending a bail hearing on Thursday at the Robert S.K. Welch Courthouse in St. Catharines.
