On December 23, 2015, a Corporal from the Assiniboia RCMP detachment led an initiative to raise funds for a community charity.
In January 2017, it was discovered there were no funds in the charity bank account. The incident was reported to the police and an investigation started. A review of the charity bank account found that over $16,000 had been withdrawn and the account closed.
The officer became the subject of an RCMP Code of Conduct investigation and was suspended with pay. On June 1, 2018, the officer resigned from the RCMP. The Code of Conduct process was ended as this process only applies to serving RCMP officers.
On May 27, 2019, Jason St. Pierre (1976-10-28) was charged with Criminal Breach of Trust, Section 336 of the Canadian Criminal Code.
St. Pierre will appear in the Assiniboia Provincial Court on August 8, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.
