File # 2016-134360
On July 21, 2017, charges were sworn against one Surrey woman for allegedly defrauding a Surrey school Parent Advisory Council (PAC).
On September 16, 2016, Surrey’s KB Woodward Elementary School contacted police to report that the PAC had been defrauded of over $35,000. Officers from the Surrey RCMP Economic Crime Unit led the investigation and quickly identified a suspect.
Now charged is Ms. Tuyet NGO, 31 years old, of Surrey. NGO has been charged with Fraud Over $5000, Theft Over $5000, and Using Forged Bank Statements. NGO turned herself in on July 24th after a warrant was issued for her arrest. NGO’s next court appearance is on July 31st at Surrey Provincial Court.
The victims in this incident were the students at K.B. Woodward and the surrounding neighbourhood, says Corporal Scotty Schumann.
It was heartening to see businesses, individuals, and the K.B. Woodward school community come together afterwards to raise funds to cover the losses.
