Mississauga Principal Facing Fraud Charges

A Toronto man will appear in court following alleged misappropriated funds.

According to Peel Police, investigators from the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau have arrested a Toronto man in relation to alleged misappropriated funds.

In June 2018, auditors from the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board made Peel Regional Police aware of discrepancies in cash handling procedures at an elementary school in Mississauga, police say.

According to police, over $30,000 of school funds were not accounted for.

An investigation was conducted and yesterday, Oct. 17, David Clifford a 53-year-old man from Toronto, was charged with fraud over $5,000, police say.

He will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on a future date, police say.
