Winnipeg company testing truckers for drugs and alcohol charged

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg drug- and alcohol-testing company contracted to certify truck drivers who operate in the United States is facing charges.

Precision Health has been sending samples to laboratories to be tested for years, but got into financial arrears.

Police say that meant the company did not have all samples properly tested and falsified certification results.

Investigators say clients were unaware that the certifications were forged and the business continued to charge the full rate for its services.

Police have not provided an exact number of companies and drivers affected, but said it was ``significant.''

Company owner Colleen Faye Robinson, who is 54, is charged with fraud, forgery and using a forged document.

She has been released on a promise to appear in court.
