Three employees of the Dakota Ojibway Police Service have been charged with unauthorized use of credit card data after an investigation by RCMP.
Police say charges also extend to family members of the officers and one youth, who allegedly used business credit cards for personal use between January 22 and May 10 of this year in the Altona and Morris area.
Charged are Sgt. Darryl Hunter, 32, of Morris, Cst. Derek Smoke, 44, of Morris, Robyn Hunter, 34, of Morris, Julie Seniuk (detachment clerk), 34, of Altona, and a male youth, 17, of Morris.
The charges come after DOPS management brought concerns forward to review the Mounties.
All five will appear in Emerson provincial court on December 9.
