Two RCMP members who worked in West Kootenay detachments will stand trial this fall.
Cst. Kelly Barrie, 32, who was at the Slocan Lake detachment, faces one count each of fraud under $5,000 and false pretense under $5,000 relating to an expense claim of approximately $125 for work-related travel.
The offences are alleged to have occurred on March 8, 2011 in Nelson.
Court records show Barrie's trial is scheduled for September 20 in Nelson.
She came to New Denver in 2009 after five years at other postings in BC and Alberta.
Meanwhile, Cst. Sam Nakatsku, 37, formerly of the Nakusp detachment, is facing one count of breach of undertaking for allegedly violating a no contact order with Barrie on November 18, 2010 in Kelowna.
He will stand trial in Kelowna on October 12.
Both officers remain on active duty. Nakatsu now works in Williams Lake for Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services.
