Richmond RCMP officer charged with committing indecent acts near school

March 12, 2020 - 9:00 AM

An RCMP officer in Richmond has been charged for voyeurism and preforming indecent acts near a school in Vancouver.

The Richmond RCMP officer, Andrew Seangio, is suspended with pay.

He allegedly committed the act while off duty in February of 2019. It is not made clear in the release which school the acts happened near. He has been charged with ten counts of committing an indecent act and one count of voyeurism. 

"In addition to the Vancouver Police criminal investigation, the Richmond RCMP immediately launched an internal code of conduct investigation. The allegations are concerning and are not in keeping with our expectations," Supt. Will Ng, Richmond RCMP detachment commander says in a media release.

Seangio’s duty status is being reviewed. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 29.
