A Halifax woman has been arrested following an 18-month "romance scam" investigation in Ontario.
In August 2018, two brothers contacted police in St. Thomas, a city about a half hour drive south of London.
The pair told the St. Thomas Police Service they were settling their deceased mother's estate when they found over $150,000 missing from her bank account.
Police believe the woman may have been scammed by someone claiming to a man from Texas.
Investigators discovered several suspicious iTunes purchases and cash transfers they tracked to a bank account in Halifax.
Detectives flew to Halifax to arrest a suspect on Monday.
Ogheneruemu Osirim, 33, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
