Police charge three men in relation to fraud and theft investigation

On February 5 at 12:31 p.m., employees at a Halifax hotel phoned police to report a fraud involving a credit card used to book a room online. The men who had booked the room were not at the hotel when officers arrived.

Officers returned shortly after 9 p.m. and located three men in a room at the hotel. They were arrested without incident and transported to police headquarters.

Through the course of the investigation, police located and seized a number of brand new cell phones and accessories, store gift cards, multiple pieces of government issued identification in various names, credit cards and a Visa gift card.

Thirty-two-year-old Emmanuel Kwakwah, 20-year-old Allan Lochard and 27-year-old Lion Vernon all from Quebec, are facing numerous charges including: fraud under $5000, identity theft, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit an offence. The three men are scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date.
