(PERTH COUNTY, ON) - The Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have arrested and charged a person after a suspect attended a local financial institution and scammed the bank for approximately $40,000.

On May 21 2020, at approximately 11:00 a.m., the suspect attended the financial institution in the Municipality of North Perth, where they provided identification. The suspect then performed some banking transactions, with a total value of approximately $40,000. It was later determined that the suspect had stolen a person's identity, and the transactions were found to be fraudulent.

On June 11 2020, police were contacted again by staff at the financial institution, since the same suspect had attended another branch in Exeter. Staff became suspicious, and sent the suspect away. It was learned that this same individual had an appointment scheduled at a Mitchell branch the same day.

Perth County OPP and the Perth County Crime Unit attended the Mitchell location, and arrested the suspect.

As a result, Ivan LAUC, 48, of Toronto, has been arrested and charged with:

Fraud Over $5000 (three counts)
Personation with Intent (Identity Fraud) (three counts)
Possession of a Forged Document with Intent
Fail to Comply with Probation Order


The accused has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford, at a later date, to answer to the charges. The accused was released to another jurisdiction, who had an outstanding warrant for their arrest.

Anyone with information regarding this or any incident is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or online at www.opp.ca/reporting.
