Former Regina residents conned victims out of $2 million in online romance scams: RCMP

One man has been arrested and four others are wanted by police after they allegedly conned victims out of millions of dollars in online romance scams, officials say.

A Canada-wide warrant has been issued by Saskatchewan RCMP for the arrest of Kelvin Awani, 24, Jonah Eigbuluese, 22, Joshua Ometie, 25 and Clinton Newton, 27.

The four men, along with Austin Newton, 28, are accused of defrauding victims of over $2 million through online romance scams over the past two years.

Police say the five men were living in Regina during the time. Austin Newton was arrested in January, but the other four suspects could be anywhere in Canada, police say.
