A 54-year-old Winnipeg businesswoman is facing a number of fraud and forgery charges after a prolonged investigation by Winnipeg Police.
Colleen Faye Robinson, the owner of Precision Health, a drug and alcohol testing company, is accused of allegedly not testing samples and falsifying results. The case surrounds a number of tests that were supposed to have been done to certify transport truck drivers so that they could operate in the United States.
According to police, the companies who had contracted Precision Health were unaware that the samples had not been properly tested.
Investigators from the Financial Crime Unit began their investigation in October 2017 and say that those companies who had contracted services were charged full rates even though testing had not been done.
Police say that practice continued unchecked until they executed a search warrant at the company office on September 6, 2018.
Robinson was released on a promise to appear in court.
