Toronto police say three people have been arrested in connection with a $1.6-million, seven-year-long fraud at York University.

It is alleged that between November 2005 and October 2012, three employees were involved in the misappropriation of funds from the university in a fraudulent billing scheme.

Det. Gail Regan says the university contacted police after it became aware of the alleged misappropriation of funds and three people, two women and one man, were arrested on Wednesday following an investigation.

Vittoria Caparello, 51, of Vaughan, is charged with two counts of fraud over $5,000 while Yossi Zaidfeld, 38, of Vaughan, is charged with one count of fraud over $5,000.

Melissa Caparello, 27, of Vaughan, is charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

The investigation is ongoing and police say they anticipate further arrests and charges.
