Lethbridge Police say Tammy Judy Yolanta Kotowski and her alleged accomplice, 28-year-old Kyle Anthony Blakely, who is facing another 84 charges, victimized 30 people.
Blakely is facing charges for possession of stolen property, uttering a forged document, fraud, false pretenses, make/possess identity documents, possession of undelivered mail, and possession of credit card data.
