On October 18, The RCMP Federal Policing Integrated Money Laundering Investigative Team (IMLIT), charged  53-year-old Doureid Al-Dargazli of Calgary with four counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 contrary and one count of money laundering.

After a comprehensive investigation, IMLIT found that he had defrauded millions from multiple financial institutions in the Calgary area between 2015 and 2020.

“With the support of our partner agencies, the Forensic Accounting Management Group and the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada, we were able to keep Canada’s economy safe from someone who chose to exploit its financial institutions. We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the public for reporting suspicious activity and the tips we received," said Superintendent Sean Boser, OIC of Federal Policing in Calgary previously

Al-Dargazli's first court appearance was in Calgary Provincial Court on November 28, 2022, and he is set to appear once again in court on January 3, 2023.
