A Richmond RCMP officer has been charged in connection with a sexual misconduct case in Vancouver that alleged took place early last year.
Andrew Seangio, an RCMP officer, allegedly committed indecent acts in February 2019 near a school in Vancouver while off duty.
“In addition to the Vancouver police criminal investigation, the Richmond RCMP immediately launched an internal code of conduct investigation,” said Supt. Will Ng, detachment commander of the Richmond RCMP.
“The allegations are concerning and are not in keeping with our expectations.”
Seangio has been charged with 10 counts of indecent act and one count of voyeurism.
He remains suspended with pay and his duty status is “subject to continuous review and assessment.”
The names of the victims cannot be identified under a publication ban.
Seangio is expected to appear in a Vancouver Provincial Court on April 29.
