On March 25, 2022, as reported by CTV News, a woman has committed multiple crimes of defrauding money from a Catholic Church in Nova Scotia. The book-keeper of St. Anselm Catholic Church in West Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia has defrauded the Church of over $250, 000 over a 12-year period. The notice came from financial irregularities being noticed by public in the surrounding area. The Halifax-Yarmouth Archdiocese launched its own investigation into the incident. The woman, Patricia Dixon, aged 47, was arrested with multiple charges against her: fraud (over $5,000), possession of property obtained by crime, trafficking in identity, identity fraud, falsifying books and information, and using forged documents. Dixon was employed by the Church from the year 2008 to 2020, giving her a 12-year period in which she was able to commit these crimes. Dixon will appear in court on May 3, 2022. The investigation is still on-going.
