Man charged with allegedly using fraudulent COVID-19 document at Pearson Airport in Mississauga
Police say that investigators have charged a man with allegedly using a fraudulent COVID-19 document at Toronto Pearson Airport in Mississauga.
Peel police say that on Feb. 8, 2021, a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer, along with the Public Quarantine officer at the CBSA inspection point, was conducting checks when a man's negative COVID-19 document was allegedly revealed to be fraudulent. Police allege the man actually had a positive test result.
Police say the 29-year-old man from Stratford was arrested and charged for knowingly using a forged document.
He was released and will appear in court on April 19, 2021.
“Discussions with Public Health determined that there were no additional offences under the HPPA or Emergency Management Act and they facilitated his transport to a hotel for the required quarantine period,” police said in a news release.
Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to contact the Airport Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-3311, ext. 3120.
