Woman charged with defrauding Murwillumbah business

A woman who allegedly defrauded a Murwillumbah business of more than $130,000 has been charged.

The 40-year-old was arrested on Tuesday after detectives executed a search warrant at a home in Bray Park.

During the raid, officers seized documentation and electronic devices which will be forensically examined.


Police said investigations revealed the woman had allegedly defrauded the business since December 2009, before she was dismissed in March 2017.

She was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station and charged with seven counts of steal property as clerk / servant.

The woman was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Murwillumbah Local Court on Tuesday 23 May.

Police say further charges are expected.
