Another man has been charged over allegedly fleecing money from a Queensland government department.
Police have charged a 46-year-old man with fraud for allegedly submitting invoices for payment of work that was never carried out on a Department of Housing and Public Works’ property.
He was arrested at an Inala home on Thursday night and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday morning.
On Thursday, a 49-year-old former QBuild supervisor was charged with fraud after he allegedly approved 289 fraudulent invoices from July 2009 to August 2012.
It’s claimed the total value of the invoices is just over $291,000 and the charges relate to attempts by the man to charge work conducted on his home to a work account.
The man resigned from his role with QBuild, now Building and Asset Services and part of Queensland’s department of Housing and Public Works, in August 2012.
