Winnipeg cop charged with fraud

  • Print

A veteran Winnipeg police officer is on administrative leave after he was charged with several counts of fraud.

Sgt. Richard Sierhuis, 47, was charged following an investigation by the force's professional standards unit that began last October.

Sierhuis faces seven counts of fraud over $5000 as well as charges of passing of wares or services, and driving an unregistered vehicle.  Police did not release details of the circumstances of the alleged offences, but said they involved off-duty conduct.

Sierhuis, a 24-year member of the Winnipeg Police Service, was released on a promise to appear and is on administrative leave until the service determines his employment status.
