(QUINTE WEST, ON) The Quinte West Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has laid charges following a complaint of two individuals selling fake gold jewellery.

On April 18, 2024, at approximately 1:30 a.m., Quinte West OPP received a complaint whereby the victim was defrauded of over $3700. The victim was approached by the accused, at a service station on the 401, selling gold jewellery. After spending $3735 on rings and chains, the victim advised they wished to purchase more, leaving the service station with the agreement the accused would follow them to a destination where the victim could retrieve more funds.
