A REDDITCH bank worker is due to appear in court charged with theft and fraud involving amounts totalling £752,155.
The 26-year-old man, who lives in the town, has been charged with three offences of theft by employee and three counts of committing fraud by abuse of position while working as a counter support officer for Lloyds Banking Group at the Halifax branch in Evesham Walk, Redditch.
The theft charges involve cash totalling £187,155 and the fraud charges relate to amounts totalling a further £565,000. The sums are alleged to have been taken from a central, non-customer account, over a period between September 1 2011 and July 11 2012.
The man was originally arrested in August last year by officers from West Mercia Police's Economic Crime Unit.
After he was formally charged on January 16 he was released on police bail to appear at Redditch Magistrates Court on Tuesday, February 5.
