SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A former airport construction worker accused of turning in nearly 30 fraudulent time cards has been charged.

The 25-year-old man was charged yesterday with one count of theft and six counts of forgery.

Court documents say the man was hired by a temporary staffing agency to work at the Penhall/Salt Lake International Airport construction site and was to report his time to them.

Court records say the man's fraudulent time cards showed he had worked just over eight-hundred hours between September 12th and December fifth. As a result, court records say, the man received more than 13-thousand dollars in wages and benefits.

The man is being held in the Salt Lake County Jail on 25-thousand dollar bail.
