The police investigation began after United Chiefs and Councils of Manitoulin became suspicious
The chief of a First Nation community on Manitoulin Island faces charges of criminal breach of trust, criminal harassment and intimidation of a justice system participant.
In October 2016, the United Chiefs and Councils of Manitoulin contacted police to look into alleged criminality.
The Sudbury-Manitoulin detachment of the OPP began an investigation which wrapped up this week with the arrest of a 60-year old woman.
Police say she is the Chief of Aundeck Omni Kaning First Nation, near Little Current, Ont.
