Man faces charges in alleged mail diversion

An Ontario man faces charges in relation to an alleged mail diversion that saw credit cards and gift cards being sent to mail box of an unintended recipient.

The Canadian Press reported that York Regional Police  had been contacted in August by Canada Post investigators who made them aware of mail being diverted using online tools from its intended recipients to a post office box in Vaughan, north of Toronto.

The CP report went on to say that with assistance from Canada Post, police began an investigation to determine who was retrieving the mail from the box and a suspect was arrested last week at a residence in Vaughan. Police say several credit cards in various names were found at the residence along with redirected mail, currency and a credit card reader/writer.

The CP story stated that Prince Imalenowa was charged with fraudulently redirecting mail, defrauding the public under $5,000 and fraud over $5,000.
