Charged laid after money goes missing from RCMP

Audit prompts investigation after nearly $40,000 found missing from Chilliwack RCMP exhibit room

A former City of Chilliwack employee has been charged in connection with the disappearance of nearly $40,000 in cash and cheques from the RCMP’s main exhibit room.

Police were conducting a routine exhibit audit of the Chilliwack main exhibit room in August of 2011, when the learned a sum of money was missing.

“When the audit revealed a discrepancy, we immediately launched an investigation and imposed greater restrictions to the exhibit room, reducing the number of people with access to the room, changing locks and combinations,” said Inspector Grant Wilson, Acting Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment.

The subsequent investigation revealed that approximately $37,000 in Canadian currency, $46 in American currency and nearly $4,000 in Government of Canada cheques were missing in relation to 19 separate files.

Jamie Tiller, age 36, of Chilliwack, has been charged with theft over $5,000.  She was arrested on March 5, and has since been released.  Her next court appearance is on March 19.

“The allegations are disappointing, and of course very concerning to us,” said Wilson. “Since this investigation began, Chilliwack RCMP has taken a number of steps to improve the handling of exhibits, processes and procedures.”
