ATM fraud spree across Western Canada linked to one man

It’s nice when you can wrap up a bunch of ID theft cases into one neat bundle.  In Canada, one of those bundles is allegedly an Ontario man named Kokulan Kanagaratnam.  Paul Turenne of QMI Agency reports:

An Ontario man arrested by Winnipeg police last month in connection with a high-tech ATM fraud allegedly went on a crime spree across Western Canada prior to his arrival in Winnipeg, QMI Agency has learned.

Court documents obtained by QMI Agency show city police laid 20 additional charges against 26-year-old Kokulan Kanagaratnam on Wednesday, adding to the 19 offences he had already been charged with.

All but one of the new charges relate to identity thefts that allegedly occurred in Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon over the course of the summer.
