A 33-year-old Red Deer woman is facing fraud charges after a local veterinary clinic was allegedly defrauded of more than $25,000.

In October 2008, RCMP started to investigate an internal fraud, where a person appeared to be altering documents and taking money from the company. A worker seemed to be creating false invoices to reflect refunds for services rendered and product purchased, as well as altering medical records. Some of the invoices that were falsified were issued to the office of the public trustee, defrauding the office of more than $650.

Jade Rogers of Red Deer has been charged with fraud over $5,000, fraud under $5,000 and falsifying documents. She will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday.
