Man ac­cused of al­ter­ing po­lice back­ground check

The Chatham Daily News - - NEWS -

On Aug. 2, a man re­ceived a vul­ner­a­ble sec­tor check and crim­i­nal records check from the Chatham-Kent Po­lice Ser­vice.

The man re­port­edly 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.

At this time, 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 said.

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

On Mon­day, the 30-year-old Wal­lace­burg man was ar­rested and charged with forgery and ut­ter­ing a forged doc­u­ment. He was re­leased with a court date.
