Charges dropped in alleged fraud and theme scheme in Consort

Charges were dismissed against an Edmonton man who was charged with running a fraud and theft scheme in Consort.

Samuel Skinner, 58, was to have gone to trial on Monday in Red Deer’s Court of Queen’s Bench. But the case against him was dropped when the charges that were laid in 2012 were dismissed on Oct. 26.

Charges were previously stayed against his co-accused, Patrick Gramlich of Consort.
