Warrant for the arrest of Jody Faucher for fraud incidents

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, May 14, 2015 9:30am

(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Fraud Unit is seeking public assistance in locating fraud suspect Jody FAUCHER (m), 45 years old of Ottawa. There is a warrant for his arrest.

He is believed to be responsible for approx. 50 incidents – and a total of 11 investigative files – related to telephone credit card scams between February 2015 and May 2015.

Faucher targets small businesses that accept over the phone credit card orders and uses stolen credit card. He will typically ask for items to have currency placed in them, such as enclosing cash in envelope with an order of flowers, or, currency to be “baked” into goods (cakes) ordered. He then picks up the item.

He is described as a Caucasian male, 5’6” (168 cm), 180 lbs (82 kg), with short dark hair. His face is also scarred from acne (see photo.)

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Service Fraud Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5433. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by downloading the Ottawa Police iOS app.
