    Cancer Con Man Back In Jail

    This is a story we have pasted from Calgary Metro News, which is a free publication, and can be found at www.metronews.ca.

    Bryan Andrew Casavant, nicknamed the ‘Cancer Conman,’ was arrested Tuesday in Saskatoon.

    "He has charges ... in Edmonton and there are also charges that will be laid in Winnipeg, and then there’s also ongoing investigations to incidents he may have been involved with elsewhere."

    —POLICE SPOKESWOMAN KAREN CARLSON

    A conman who’s stolen thousands of dollars from elderly, ill, and disabled victims across Alberta has been arrested in Saskatoon.

    Police sought Bryan Andrew Casavant, 46, on a Canada-wide warrant for two local fraud schemes following his conviction last year that targeted cancer patients in medical facilities.

    Nicknamed the “Cancer Conman,” Casavant swindled money from his victims by offering to help pay their medical bills with regular deposits into their bank accounts, police said. They handed over their bank cards and PIN numbers, but he only deposited empty envelopes before he took money out of their accounts.

    Casavant was handed an eight-year prison term by a Calgary judge in 2006, but was granted day parole less than a year later. He then disappeared from a Calgary half-way house.

    Casavant is being held in a Prince Albert, Sask., penitentiary following his arrest Tuesday at a Saskatoon hotel.

    “He has charges here in Edmonton and there are also charges that will be laid in Winnipeg, and then there’s also ongoing investigations to incidents he may have been involved with elsewhere,” said police spokeswoman Karen Carlson.

    “It’s hard to say where he will be taken to face those charges.”

    Police were notified of his whereabouts after a hotel staff member recognized the alleged fraudster from a police bulletin that was circulated among Saskatchewan hotels by the local hospitality association.

    “I think with the successful conclusions of this one, it shows we do have a good network,” said Tom Mullin, president of the Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association.
