Man charged with defrauding employer of more than $300K

A man has been charged for defrauding his employer of more than $300,000.

In July of this year, a manager at a Sydney-based horticulture business noticed some inconsistencies in invoices that had been submitted by one of their staff.

Internal inquiries were conducted and led to the discovery of $328,000 in incorrectly and falsely claimed expenses.


Police from Sydney City Local Area Command were notified and commenced an investigation into the matter.

Following police inquiries, a 33-year-old man attended Sydney City Police Station yesterday (Tuesday 8 September 2015).

He was arrested and charged with fraud, before being granted conditional bail to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on 7 October 2015.

In court, police will allege the man spent the money on a personal business interest, completely separate from his role at the horticulture business.
