BURLINGTON, ON  November 28, 2012  It took then months to figure it all out but when the numbers were added up ASK Cosmetics was short $700,000 and Detectives from the Halton Police Regional Fraud Unit decided they had enough evidence to arrest a former vice-president on four counts of Fraud Over $5,000 and one count of Possession of Proceeds of Crime.

Petra Ursula HESS (56 yrs) of Burlington, was arrested and charged on November 15, 2012.

She was released at that time with conditions pending the outcome of her court proceedings.  Her first court appearance has been scheduled for December 19, 2012 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Milton.

It’s going to be a tough Christmas in the Hess household.
