Mountie removed from duty after theft allegation

  • Print

A member of the RCMP has been removed from active duty following a criminal investigation dating back to last year.

On May 30, 2013, RCMP opened an investigation when an allegation surfaced that an off-duty officer was involved in a theft. No other details on the crime were made available.

Once the investigation was completed, the findings were forwarded over to Manitoba Justice to obtain an independent legal opinion on the matter.

Earlier this week, criminal charges (theft under $5,000) were made against Const. Walter Chartier. The Pas native, a regular RCMP member, is scheduled to appear in a provincial court next month.

RCMP say an internal disciplinary process has been started regarding the matter. Chartier has been re-assigned to administrative duties.
