A former top official with the Municipal District of Taber has been charged with fraud over $5,000 for allegedly charging personal purchases to M.D. credit cards and obscuring the charges.

The Taber Police Service said Friday that they had charged Bryan Badura, 53, after opening an investigation last September when they were contacted by the local government.

Authorities say that over an 11 month period, unauthorized purchases totalling $11,000, were made. That amount has since been repaid.

Badura is scheduled to appear in Taber Court of Justice on July 9.

Officials with the MD released a statement Friday stressing the “proactive response” to the incidents, and that it is instituting greater financial monitoring and controls.
