Facing fraud charges after a complaint by the Kativik Regional Government, former Kativik Police Chief Brian Jones has just found himself on the other side of the law.
According to Nunatsiaq News, the allegations against Jones stem from a misuse of money seized by police during drug busts carried out in Nunavik while he was chief of police.
Jones was fired by the Kativik Regional Government two and a half years ago after 14 years of service. He is being charged under Sec. 122 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
In that no police force in Canada is allowed to carry out an investigation involving their own squad, the Sûrété du Québec investigated the complaint and charged Jones.
Jones is now a special investigator with the Cree police in Whapmagoostui.
