Ex-Cambridge Bay housing manager accused of defrauding $133K from employer
Jim Peckham was charged with fraud after housing association audit
A former housing manager in Cambridge Bay charged with defrauding his employer allegedly transferred more than $100,000 of company money to his personal credit card, according to court documents.
Jim Peckham, 51, is charged with defrauding the Cambridge Bay Housing Association of $133,500 between February 2012 and May 2014, according to documents filed with the Nunavut Court of Justice.
Police began investigating in December 2015 after an audit of the housing association revealed a significant amount of unauthorized funds had been spent over the years.
It's not the first time police have investigated the Cambridge Bay Housing Association. In 2011, RCMP investigated allegations of theft from the association.
Peckham no longer lives in Cambridge Bay.
His case was in court last Monday in Cambridge Bay and will be back in court Jan. 9.
