Multiple Charges Sworn Related to Identity Theft Investigation
A Delta woman has been charged with forty offences related to identity theft and credit card fraud. In November 2020, the Delta Police opened an investigation related to suspected credit card fraud. The investigation determined the suspect obtained identification and credit card information, using the documents and data for personal gain.
Charges in relation to this investigation have now been sworn. 31-year-old Tarndeep Uppal, of North Delta, has been charged with:
One count of theft of credit card and identity information contrary to section 334 of the Criminal Code;
Fourteen counts of fraud under $5000 contrary to section 380(1)(b)(i) of the Criminal Code;
Twenty-five counts of possessing identity information with intent to use it to commit an indictable offence that includes fraud, deceit, or falsehood contrary to section 402.2(1) of the Criminal Code.
Uppal has been released with conditions not to possess credit cards, identification or data in any other name but her own.
This matter is before the Courts and no further information will be released.
