They said the retail company, which is a brick-and-mortar store with an online presence, reported losses that came to a total of around $375,000.

On Tuesday, with the help of police in London, police searched a home in that city and arrested a 34-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman.

The pair are both facing several charges, including fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, trafficking credit card data, laundering proceeds of crime and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

Police say they are continuing to investigate and are asking anyone with information to call 519-570-9777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
