A former ICBC employee is facing criminal charges linked to a string of attacks on people connected to the Justice Institute of BC.
44-year-old Candy Elaine Rheaume has been charged with fraudulent computer use to access personal information in the ICBC database.
Fifteen innocent people were targeted in the terror campaign, which involved 23 attacks ranging from shootings to arson across a number of Lower Mainland municipalities.
Two men were arrested back in 2015, the alleged ‘mastermind’ of the operation Vincent Cheung, and a man he contracted to carry out the attacks.
Cheung, was sentenced to 13 and a half years in prison for his role last summer.
During his trial, the court heard that Cheung was suffering from a drug-induced paranoia and believed people from the justice institute were following him and trying to control his brain with a satellite.
He took photos of cars parked at the New Westminster campus, and then had someone at ICBC run the plates to determine his targets’ home addresses.
An investigation by the Combined Forces Special Investigation Unit discovered Rheaume, who was then working as an adjustor, had allegedly looked up license plates of the 15 victims and passed them on to Cheung.
She was fired for a breach of confidential information back in 2011, but has only now been criminally charged.
Rheaume, who has no criminal record, will appear in next in court on February 15.
