According to police, an investigation revealed that the pair were manufacturing and selling false certificates attesting to 750 hours of training, at a cost of $800 per certificate. Both suspects are now facing charges of fraud and the fabrication of false documents.
The SPVM said that help from the public led to the launch of a police investigation into the fraud case.

A large section of Autoroute 40 East in Montreal is set to close for the whole weekend.
In a press release, Transports Québec said that repair work on the pavement necessitates the complete closure of A-40 Est between exit 71 to boulevard Saint-Laurent / rue Saint-Denis and the entrance from boulevard Saint-Michel.
The Montreal route starts on rue Sherbrooke (at the corner of boulevard Pie IX), goes east then left on boulevard Viau, left on boulevard Rosemont, left on avenue Bourbonnière, and ends back on rue Sherbrooke. Watch out for heavy traffic.
Le Boulevard's Facebook announcement said that its merchants — which include Dollarama, Canadian Tire and Urban Planet — will be liquidating merchandise until its closure. So keep an eye out for upcoming sales.
"Until the Center closes for good, we invite you to come and take advantage of the closing sales of our merchants, who will gradually leave us in the coming months," the post reads.
The comments section beneath the Facebook announcement is full of nostalgic customers expressing their sadness.
