|A Calgary lending company paid $2,300 to Calgary police Det. Gerard Brand for information about debtors, a jury heard. Brand faces charges of breach of trust by a public official and unauthorized use of a computer for accessing Calgary Police and the RCMP’s federal database.|
Prosecutors said jurors will hear evidence Brand sold information to a lending company, Manila Capital, that he obtained through his employment. None of the individuals for which Brand obtained information were the subject of an actual police investigation. An email trail shows Brand sent the company 22 invoices.
