A Wallaceburg man faces fraud charges after allegedly altering his criminal records check documents.

Chatham-Kent Police Service officials say on August 2, 2017 a man received a Vulnerable Sector Check and Criminal Records Check from the Chatham-Kent Police Service.

Police allege that the man altered the document for employment purposes and was hired by a local company.

As a result of a company expansion, the general manager submitted employee names to another region for a secondary police check, police say.

It is at this time that the manager was notified that the man could not be licensed to work in that region due to numerous criminal convictions and an outstanding charge for impersonating a peace officer, police allege.

The manager contacted the Chatham-Kent Police Service with his concerns about the altered documents and an investigation commenced.

Yesterday, a 30-year-old Wallaceburg man was arrested and charged with forgery and uttering a forged document.

He was released pending a future court date of September 26, 2017.
