Val Caron man charged after rod and gun club's lottery pilfered

Accused facing charges of theft, breach of trust

The Ontario Provincial Police has charged a Greater Sudbury resident after investigating allegations involving a local charity's funds.

Irregularities relating to a lottery trust account held by the Trailsmen Rod and Gun Club have been under investigation since June of this year.

That's when the City of Greater Sudbury Security and Bylaw Services contacted the OPP Investigation and Enforcement Bureau (IEB) attached to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) about the issue. 

A 64-year-old Val Caron man was charged Dec. 6 with theft over $5,000 and criminal breach of trust. He's scheduled to appear in court Jan. 15.

Other charitable enterprises in the area may also have been affected, said a press release.

If irregularities are discovered, concerned charities should contact Detective Constable Alain St. Jacques, OPP Investigation and Enforcement Bureau at 705-855-0502.
