KENTVILLE - A 35-year-old Nova Scotia man is facing charges after police say someone was illegally selling medical alert devices.
Kings District RCMP say Thomas Peter Fennessey is charged with three counts under the Nova Scotia Direct Seller’s Act after police received complaints over the summer of a possible fraud.
In early August, the RCMP say several people called complaining about someone seeking large amount of money in advance for the purchase of medical alarm equipment and monitoring services.
Police investigated and say the seller didn’t hold a permit to sell the equipment under the direct seller’s act.
Fennessey is due in Kentville provincial court to face the charges on Nov. 12. He also will be appearing in Shubenacadie provincial court Dec. 9 for two other unspecified incidents.
