A Stirling, Alta. man facing charges in a money-laundering scheme has had his case adjourned yet again.
The case against 36-year-old Stephen James Evanson was pushed back to July 10 after a series of delays.
Evanson, who was previously released on a recognizance, is charged with fraud over $5,000 and money laundering. Police said that in October 2016 they responded to a report of possible fraud at Schwartz Reliance Insurance after an employee noted discrepancies in some of the accounts.
