NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) -- A Bahamas resident wanted on criminal charges in Canada has returned there to face investigators.

Canada's anti-corruption police said Tuesday that Jeremy Morris voluntarily flew from the Bahamas to Montreal to face allegations of fraud in the construction of a hospital in Quebec.

Police spokeswoman Anne-Frederick Laurence says Morris was arrested Monday at Montreal's international airport. She says he had an initial court hearing Tuesday.

Morris is the administrator of a Bahamas-based investment company linked to the alleged fraud.

Arthur Porter is another Bahamas resident who is wanted in the Canadian fraud case. Porter says he has cancer and is too ill to travel to face investigators.

Porter was the director of the Canadian hospital when the alleged fraud occurred between 2008 and 2011.
