MONTREAL — A Montreal financial adviser alleged to have bilked clients out of as much as $50 million is expected to appear in court on Tuesday.
Quebec provincial police took Earl Jones into custody today, nearly three weeks after he disappeared from view.
Police led a handcuffed Jones out of a Montreal office tower accompanied by his lawyer, Jeffrey Boro.
Police say in a statement they are talking with a man who has been the subject of recent complaints from investors.
They say he will likely appear at the Montreal courthouse on Tuesday.
Quebec’s financial securities regulator has alleged Jones may have swindled investors out of between $30 million and $50 million.
