Two people have been arrested and Burnaby Mounties are looking for a third person after 200 people were allegedly defrauded.

 

Police believe people from Burnaby, Richmond, New Westminster, Langley and Squamish were victims. Mounties said they caught onto the trail when someone reported a suspicious purchase at a computer store at Metrotown.

“It’s alleged that one of the suspects purchased iPhones with someone else’s credit card and then rented a vehicle with yet another identity,” police said.

The investigation led to the raid of a Squamish home, where police found 200 identities, including credit cards, drivers’ licences, BCIDs, immigration papers and more.

Shawn Lundrigan, 33 and Kimberly McSweeney, 22, have been charged with multiple counts of fraud and identity theft.
