Arrest Made in Halton Hills Theft of Mail & Identity Fraud

Halton Regional Police Service Logo

The Halton Regional Police Fraud Unit recently entered into an investigation involving fraudulently obtained credit cards and mail theft.

The investigation focused on fraudulent “true name” credit card applications being completed on-line and unbeknownst to those victims who had their identity compromised. Once approved, the credit cards were mailed to the victim’s address on file where fraudsters laid in wait, intercepting the cards moments after being delivered. Once in possession of the credit cards, the fraudsters would immediately rack up thousands of dollars in unauthorized credit.

A male suspect was identified as being involved in several mail theft occurrences in the Georgetown and Acton areas, specifically targeting rural properties with roadside mailboxes. Regional Fraud investigators, in conjunction with 1 and 2 District Criminal Investigation Bureau members, arrested the male after conducting several acts of mail theft in the Halton Hills area. Further investigation resulted in a search warrant being conducted at a Toronto address where the accused was found to be in possession of a vast quantity of fraudulent identification, credit cards and stolen cheques. The investigation is continuing.

Charged with numerous fraud-related offences including Identity Fraud, Unauthorized Possession of Credit Card Data and Theft from Mail is 46 year old Suru JOHNSON of Toronto.

The Halton Regional Police Service would like to remind residents to always be cautious before releasing any personal information via phone, internet or in person.

Other methods that can be taken to avoid being a victim of identity theft include:

Fraud: Recognize it. Report it. Stop it.

Anyone with information on this crime can contact Halton Police Fraud Investigators at 905-825-4747 ext. 8739 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).

“Small Town Living at Its Best”: Halton Hills wins prestigious Marketing Canada award

town of halton hills georgetown logo

The Town of Halton Hills is proud to announce it has received the Economic Developers Association of Canada’s “Marketing Canada”award.

The award was presented to Town representative Danielle Edwards during the Association’s 46th National Conference, on September 28.

The Town of Halton Hills, in partnership with the Halton Hills Cultural Roundtable, spearheaded the creation of a new community-based brand that would complement the existing Town “corporate” brand, but also convey the enduring sustainable nature of the community.

The brand was grassroots driven and inspired, and used a highly consultative, community-based methodology to engage residents through focus groups and online surveys.

“The community brand belongs to everyone and the community is the target audience – individuals, groups and businesses. The goal of the brand is to unite everyone around our shared values, help preserve our distinctive character, and enhance our small town way of life,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

The Mayor emphasized that a community brand is not just a logo or a tagline, but represents what we are known for, what makes us unique.

Everyone in in our community is encouraged to learn about the community brand and use it to complement their own identity efforts.

Details of the brand guidelines for the use of the logo and other dimensions of the brand are available, at no cost, to local organizations.
