Police arrest and charge individual from Toronto with various theft and fraud related offences

Release Date: December 27, 2023



In June 2023, Kingston Police began an investigation into an individual who worked at a restaurant in Kingston. This individual, while at their workplace, would wear special glasses that had recording capabilities. The individual would take debit/credit cards from customers in hand and look at them closely before returning them. It was later discovered that the accused was recording the debit/credit card information.


Over the next five months a major retailer had numerous online purchases completed by the accused who would then attend these stores for refunds which were subsequently deposited into their personal debit accounts. To cover the trace of money, the funds were invested in crypto currency. During the investigation it was learned that the accused had opened a fake credit card in a family member’s name. The offences in this case took place from Kingston to Toronto.


On November 21, 2023, the accused was located and arrested by Toronto Police. The accused was transported to Kingston Police headquarters and was later released on conditions with a future court date.


Jerun SUTHAHARAN, a 20-year-old formerly of Kingston and now a resident of Toronto, has been charged with the following Criminal Code offences: theft of a credit card, fraud over $5000, possession of proceeds of crime over $5000, money laundering, identity theft, fraud under $5000 and two counts of personation.
