BAINSVILLE – Police have arrested a man in connection to a scheme where fraudulent credit cards were used to buy lottery tickets.

SD&G O.P.P. started an investigation Aug. 6 after two men went into the Bainsville ONRoute on North Service Road.

Police said they had purchased several lottery tickets with counterfeit plastic.

A 33-year-old man – Ronny Abdul Yacoub of North York – was arrested Wednesday.

He is facing 15 counts of fraud and 22 counts of failing to comply with a probation order.

He appeared in Cornwall court Thursday for a bail hearing.

Police have not said whether they are looking for the other man.
