A man allegedly faked his qualifications so he could gain employment at ACT childcare centres, according to ACT Policing.

A 35-year-old Higgins man faced the ACT Magistrate’s Court yesterday (Friday, 27 October), following an investigation into false documents being used to gain employment.

Police allege the man used false qualifications to gain employment at five separate childcare centers in the ACT between March 2016 and August 2017.

Officer in Charge of Woden Police Station, Station Sergeant Harry Hains said this investigation demonstrated the scope and variety of fraud.

“Fraud comes in many forms and has a detrimental impact on the victim and the community in general,” said Sergeant Hains.

The man was charged with four counts of using false documents and two counts of possessing prohibited substances (other drugs or greater than 25 grams of cannabis).
