Gatineau, QC – Police have arrested three people in connection with alleged theft of rolls of paper worth more than $1.1 million missing from a Domtar Corp. paper mill in Gatineau, Que., the CBC reported recently.

Police began investigating the theft on Aug. 23 and the Montreal, QC-based pulp and paper company has since closed the mill. Two men, Ronald Ricard, 58, and Yvon Lafontaine, 57, a former manager at Domtar, appeared in court Wednesday to face charges of fraud and theft over $5,000. They also face a $2 million lawsuit from Domtar. A news release from the Gatineau police said the investigation continues into the role of a 56-year-old woman.
