TABER, Alta. — A lengthy investigation into the disappearance of almost $500,000 at a restaurant in southern Alberta has led to charges against its former manager.
Police say they received a complaint in October 2014 of theft and possible fraud at the Oilmen's Club in Taber.
Scott Blanchard, who is 45, faces one count of theft over $5,000 and one count of fraud over $5,000.
He is to appear in Taber provincial court on Aug. 30.
Police say the investigation included many judicial orders and consultation with special prosecutions in Calgary.
