Two suspects arrested in statewide fraud scheme linked to 2021 Oakville shooting

The two suspects were indicted in connection with a statewide fraud scheme that resulted from an investigation into last year’s Oakville shooting.

On March 27, 2021, police responded to a shooting at a townhome at The Greenery near Sixth Line and Manns Avenue shortly after 2:30 am.

A woman with a gunshot wound was found and taken to a trauma center, but her injuries were not life-threatening. Police said the victim escaped injury.

Investigators said the shooting was targeted. They then launched a “long” investigation into the incident.

Numerous search warrants were issued, and during the investigation police said they uncovered a “sophisticated and well-organized” CERB/CEWS (Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy) fraud scheme that spanned the entire province.

Police have not released any details about the fraudulent activity.

On Thursday, police announced two arrests in connection with the investigation.

Scarborough’s 23-year-old Justis Verrall was arrested on July 29, 2022. She faces four charges against her, including possession of counterfeit marks, unauthorized possession of credit card data, and two counts of outright forged documents.

Verral was released from custody on a business.

Earlier this week, police arrested 28-year-old Sean Thomas of Fenelon Falls on August 22nd. Above all.

Thomas was held in custody pending a bail hearing.

Investigators say they are looking for more suspects in connection with the shooting.
