Three police forces in Ontario - including Orillia - are now accusing an Alberta man of fraudulently buying new cars.

Niagara Regional Police had announced five charges against the man this week.

They allege the 66-year-old suspect used fake identification documents to buy a car worth more than $120,000.

Both Waterloo Regional Police and Ontario Provincial Police say they've also laid similar charges.

Charges in Waterloo, where he was arrested this month, include fraud over $5,000 and uttering forged documents.

Provincial police laid nine charges, including three of identity theft, related to a car dealership in Orillia.
