A woman is facing fraud charges in connection with a charity event in Milton.
Halton Regional Police say they began investigating the “Forget Me Not Family Fun Fair” which began after a Milton toddler died from being left in a hot car during the summer of 2013.
Police say more than 1,400 people attended the fair in 2013 and 2014, which raised several thousand dollars for two children’s charities.
A public complaint was filed in 2018, which instigated the police investigation.
On Wednesday, police arrested and charged Rose Passarelli, 38, of Milton with fraud under $5,000, fraud over $5,000, and theft under $5,000.
She is due to appear in court in Milton on May 14.
