New Westminster – In September 2018 the New Westminster Police Department received a report of suspected fraud connected to a New Westminster medical office. The victim claimed that cash was missing from the medical office, and that suspicious large withdrawals were appearing in the bank account connected to the business.
The NWPD Major Crime Unit launched an investigation into the missing money and soon took conduct over another investigation involving large withdrawals from another medical office located in Vancouver. In total it is believed approximately $130,000.00 was stolen through both medical offices. After an extensive investigation, charges related to fraud, forged documents, theft and unauthorized use of a credit card were approved by Crown Counsel.
On August 9th 2021 Sabina Khan plead guilty to:
Three (3) counts of Fraud Exceeding $5000, contrary to Section 380(1)(a) of the Criminal Code.
“Special thanks to Detective Constable Mula who worked diligently to collect the necessary evidence on this file,” stated Media Liaison Officer Sergeant Sanjay Kumar. “Fraud is an invasive crime that can create significant problems for both businesses and individuals. We encourage everyone to periodically check their credit card reports, bank and credit card statements and report any irregularities.”
