(ORILLIA, ON) - Members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Identity Crimes Unit have charged a Kitchener resident in connection with a complex investigation involving identity theft and fraud-related crimes in various Ontario communities.

In July 2017, a fraud investigation was forwarded to the OPP Identity Crimes Unit from the Anishinabek Police Service (APS) in the Parry Sound area involving an individual who was wanted on multiple arrest warrants in Ontario. As a result of the investigation, police have charged Vincenzo Salvatore Kevan Jeffrey BEAUCAGE, aged 42 years, with the following offences contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada:

Fraud-S.380
Identity Theft-S.402.2(1)
Identity Fraud-S.403(1)
Possession of Property Obtained by Crime-S.354(1).

After executing a search warrant at a residence, police subsequently charged BEAUCAGE with:
Possession of Identity Document-S.56.1
Fraud Registration of Title-S.386
Personation with Intent-Intent to obtain property-S.403 (1)(b)- two counts
Fraudulent Registration of Title-S.386
Fraud over $5,000-S.380(1)(a)
The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Kitchener on May 29, 2018.

It should be noted that BEAUCAGE is well known to the policing community, immigration officials and most major financial institutions for his involvement in identity theft and fraud. The accused has been known to use multiple aliases and identities, has legally changed his name in the province of Ontario twice, and is believed to possess and utilize numerous fraudulent identity documents. This individual is also accused of using the identity of another individual to obtain banking products and commit real estate fraud.

Other potential victims are urged to come forward with any information that may assist with this ongoing, multi-jurisdiction investigation. The public is reminded to always report potential fraud to police or to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre for investigation and to reduce further victimization.

The OPP thank members of the Waterloo Regional Police Service and the Anishnabek Police Service for their assistance with this investigation.
