Quebec man arrested after defrauding Gravelbourg college over 15 years ago

A Quebec man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for 14 years after taking money from a Saskatchewan post-secondary school is now in custody.

Saskatchewan RCMP said on Wednesday that police arrested Robert Charbonneau on his 67th birthday on April 18 at Montreal International Airport. Charbonneau, a former director of Collège Mathieu in Gravelbourg, was charged in 2007 for fraud of over $5,000 after he allegedly took over $105,000 from the organization in charge of the college. The incidents occurred between 2004 and 2005.

The Canada-wide warrant for his arrest was issued in 2007 after Charbonneau did not appear in court in Swift Current on his charges.

Charbonneau made his first court appearance on April 19 in Montreal. He is now in custody in Montreal with his second court date scheduled for April 24.
