The charges are the result of a six month investigation by the RCMP New Brunswick Commercial Crime Section and the Grand Falls Police Force. It is alleged that Tardif was defrauding and stealing from his employer over a three- year period between August 2008 and August 2011.
“Reducing the impact of commercial crime and maintaining economic integrity are priorities for the RCMP. ” states Cpl. Serge Nadeau, a commercial crime investigator. “Our investigators have the skills and expertise needed to piece together the evidence in financial investigations which are often very complex.”
Tardif is scheduled to appear in Grand Falls Provincial court on May 8, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. to enter a plea.
