Cops: Man faked military role in fraud
by UPI

BROSSARD, Quebec - A Brossard, Canada, man is facing fraud charges after he allegedly ordered large amounts of cleaning supplies in the guise of a Canadian Forces buyer.

A joint investigation by the Surete du Quebec and Quebec City police revealed that nearly $300,000 worth of cleaning supplies -- including toilet paper, garbage bags and cleaning liquids -- that were supposedly purchased by the Canadian military allegedly were being sent to the home of Real David, 57, the Montreal Gazette reported Wednesday.

The invoices for the items, which David allegedly ordered while posing as a military buyer, were never paid.

"He ordered all kinds of things: toilet paper, cleaners, paper towels and garbage bags. All of it was ordered in large quantities," Surete Constable Ronald McInnis said. "Then he resold it at flea markets."

Police said David used his own name when ordering the items.

Three alleged accomplices -- two women aged 56 and 37 and a 37-year-old man -- were arrested alongside David.

David was previously sentenced to four years imprisonment in 2001 when he pleaded guilty to charges of forgery, fraud and theft.
