Mounties are searching for a suspect after a report of fraud at the Island Savings Credit Union in Chemainus.

The incident dates back to Dec. 14, when an individual used a stolen credit card at the bank's ATM to withdraw $200.

The RCMP released a photo of a woman they believed to be a suspect in the fraudulent transaction, however, on Feb. 9 police announced the image released to the public was actually of an innocent woman who was not connected to the crime.

Anyone with information about the fraudulent transaction is asked to call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
