Alleged online rental scammer arrested on Canada-wide warrant

A woman accused of scamming people on Kijiji is back in police custody.

37 year old Cyndi Kennedy failed to show up for court last week, and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for her arrest.

Grande Prairie RCMP says she was arrested without incident today at a home in the city.

She and her co-accused 29 year old Brandon Franklin Smith are facing several charges relating to theft, fraud, and possession of stolen property under $5,000.
