Victoria police officer charged for off-duty conduct

Regional Crown Counsel approved 13-fraud related charges against a Victoria police officer Thursday.

Regional Crown Counsel approved 13-fraud related charges against a Victoria police officer Thursday from actions that stemmed while the officer was off-duty.

Const. Leroy Anderson is charged with six counts of forgery, six counts of possession of a forged document and one count of fraud.

Anderson was suspended with pay in September after information was brought to the Victoria Police Department about potential fraudulent off-duty activity.

“These are trying times for everyone involved,” said Chief Const. Frank Elsner.

“I want to assure everyone that when this information came to light. VicPD took immediate action. As the case is now before the courts, and there is an ongoing Police Act investigation, we are limited in what we can say at this time.”

Anderson’s employment status is under view by the Victoria and Esquimalt Police Board.
