The following day, a 25-year-old and 26-year-old from Quebec were arrested just before 11 p.m. after police spotted a vehicle of interest in the 800 block of 22nd Street West.

Police remind anyone who has had a suspicious phone call to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Those who have been the victim of fraud can contact the police to report it.
