The man charged with burglary after he allegedly impersonated a doctor has been remanded in custody.

Pita Phillip Edwards, 26, of Mount Cook, faces 20 charges of  burglary of the Wellington School of Medicine, the Otago Medical school campus in Wellington, the Weltec School of Hospitality and Internal Affairs and the fraudulent use of documents like taxi chits and cheques.

Edwards did not apply for bail and was remanded by Wellington District Court judge Ian Mill until next week.

Edwards had allegedly donned a white coat and stethoscope to get into the school of medicine.  He has not been charged with impersonating a doctor.
