Former Manitoba fire commissioner charged with fraud, forgery breach of trust

WINNIPEG - A former Manitoba government official has been charged with breach of trust, fraud and forgery.

RCMP Winnipeg's federal organized crime unit says it received a forensic audit report from the provincial comptroller of the Manitoba government.

The audit by the office of the auditor general outlined allegations of irregular financial activities that occurred within the Office of the Fire Commissioner between June 2009 and February 2011.

Mounties identified accountable advances and/or expense claims which are alleged to have been supported by documents which had been fabricated and or forged.

It's alleged that more than $55,000 was paid out on the forged claims.

Christopher Jones is scheduled to appear in court in Winnipeg on Feb. 26 to answer to several charges.
