A Richmond man was arrested on Aug. 25 for identity theft and fraud-related charges stemming from incidents in 2018 and 2019.

Richmond RCMP’s criminal intelligence section began looking into Paul David Loh, 47, in the fall of 2018 following a series of suspicious credit and debit card transactions at various businesses, banks and casinos across the Lower Mainland.

“The Richmond criminal intelligence section worked diligently on this investigation to compile evidence regarding the suspicious financial transactions before seeking charge approval,” said Cpl. Ian Henderson.

In March 2019, the BC Prosecution Service approved charges of fraud over $5,000 and fraud under $5,000, but Loh remained at large until his capture this year.

Members of Richmond mobile enforcement team, strike force, criminal intelligence section and frontline officers participated in his arrest. Loh remains in custody at this time, and his next court appearance is set for Sept. 8 in Richmond Provincial Court.
