Louise Léger-Villandré, the former (Town Clerk) general manager of the town of Hudson, was arrested Thursday morning on fraud charges.

Officers with the Unité permanente anticorruption Québec (UPAC) picked up Léger-Villandré, who faces 19 criminal charges of fraud, breach of trust, and creating and using false documents.

The charges are for a series of infractions allegedly committed by Léger-Villandré between 1997 and 2013, the years she was town general manager.

It is alleged she cashed municipal cheques totalling $1.1 million through her personal account.

Léger-Villandré was arrested and then released with a promise to appear in Valleyfield  court on Dec. 10.

She resigned in April 2013 after 43 years service as a clerk and subsequently general manager. The new general manager, Catherine Haulard, took over in 2013.
