On Tuesday 28th April uniformed officers got a call from a Burlington Home Depot location who wanted to report a female who had just made a fraudulent purchase and was leaving the store.

The officers arrived and located the female in the parking lot of the business and she was subsequently arrested without incident.

Home Depot Fraud investigators advised the officers that this female who was previously unknown to them had been conducting similar fraudulent activity across the GTA over the past several months.

Members of the Halton Police Fraud unit were called in to assist in the investigation and the female has been charged with a total of 24 criminal offences including multiple counts of impersonation and fraud over $5,000 dollars. The offences have all occurred at numerous Home Depot locations across the GTA including London, Richmond Hill and Toronto as well as Oakville, Burlington and Milton.

Charged is Nicole ROUSE of Toronto.

She did not go home that evening.

    Why do police patrol a city? Perhaps to keep the city safe? I don’t feel that the streets are flooded with patrol cars where I live in Burlington. Are you suggesting that the police budget be cut?

    Shatter the illusion that Burlington has no crime? Wonder why Halton police trained so many officers here, I wonder why there’s always police patrolling the city? If there was such an illusion, this city wouldn’t be flooded with this obviously extreme overpopulation of police.

    Well, here we go again. The Gazette continues to shatter the illusion that lovely Burlington has no crime. I think that it is good that the person being charged does not have her name or her victim’s names smeared over the Gazette. Having been a victim of fraud, I found the Halton Police very helpful and searched hard for the criminal. Thank you Halton Police.

    Well, we still have the idea that there are no (very few) murders in our lovely city. I think years can pass without that tragedy. I wonder why that is? Has the Gazette examined other cities the size of Burlington as far as crime is concerned?

    I still think that Burlington is a grand peaceful city!!!
