Additional Charges Laid Against Faux Manitoba Doctor

RCMP Crest LogoMore charges have been laid against a 66-year-old Manitoba man who pretended to be a doctor and wrote fraudulent prescriptions to patients.

Leslie Colmer was charged earlier this month after it’s alleged he treated patients in Steinbach, Winnipeg, Selkirk and without having a medical licence.

An investigation was launched by RCMP after a complaint over how he conducted himself while seeing a patient.

Colmer now faces 25 charges of fraud and two for assault.

He will appear in Winnipeg court on Monday.
