A 40-year-old prison officer has been arrested after it was reported that he used fraudulent documents to get a sick leave from work.
Fraud Squad officials received a report that the prison officer submitted the documents, including a fake doctor’s note, to senior prison service officers to get time off.
The other officers became suspicious and filed a report with the Fraud Squad.
This led to the prison officer being arrested on Thursday morning at his Williamsville home.
The Fraud Squad is continuing enquiries.
