An Abbotsford police officer has been charged with fraud and obstructing justice.
Constable Rob Thandi, who has been with the police department for 20 years, is accused of using extended health benefits fraudulently.
In May, he was suspended with pay after both criminal and Police Act investigations into the allegation.
It is also alleged Thandi tried to interfere with the investigation into this matter.
The Police Act Investigation is ongoing and the Abbotsford Police Board will be asked to review whether Thandi’s pay while suspended should continue.
