The owner of an Oshawa travel agency has been charged with defrauding two clients who booked trips through his agency.
In May 2015, a 70-year-old Oshawa woman paid cash to the suspect for a return flight to visit family in Saskatchewan. When she didn't receive her ticket, a family friend looked into the matter and learned that the suspect never booked a ticket for the senior. The senior is visually impaired and had saved money for more than a year for the trip.
On Thursday, June 11, 2015, the suspect turned himself in to detectives in Oshawa.
John MILLS, age 49, of Gibbons Street in Oshawa, is charged with: Fraud Under $5,000 x3 and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime x3. He was later released on an undertaking with conditions.
Investigators want to ensure there are no other victims.
