ACT Policing will summons a 52-year-old Forde man in relation to a series of alleged fraudulent transactions over a 40-month period.

Police believe the total value of the unauthorised financial transactions is in excess of $987,000, with the thefts occurring between November 2008 and February 2012.

Police began investigating a $17,000 theft from a corporate account, but further enquiries revealed a much greater number of suspicious transactions.

Eight search warrants have been executed on the man’s residence and on the bank accounts which police will allege were used to move the stolen funds.

The man will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on January 25.
