On Thursday, members of the RCMP charged a 42-year-old Ancaster man with offenses under the Criminal Code and the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. He is facing a number of charges including fraud over $5,000 after police say he took a job as a contractor without proper certifications.

Officers said the man entered into a contract with an Ancaster resident to build a garage. After taking 40 per cent of the total cost of the project in advance, a portion of the walls were built. Police said the man misrepresented himself, claiming he was certified as a trade with the City of Hamilton, and misrepresented photos of property on his company website.

He is expected in a Toronto courtroom on Friday.
