A gambling habit drove one Canberran man to commit fraud in an attempt to win big reports ABC News.
A Canberra man has been convicted after pleading guilty to stealing almost $1 million from bank accounts to support his gambling habit.
Adi Narayan, 52, from Forde had been facing 106 charges of theft after police uncovered a series of fraudulent transactions from bank accounts between November 2008 and February 2012.
The charges were rolled into five covering the period and Narayan pleaded guilty to the crimes.
The prosecution says Narayan used the money to gamble at Sydney’s Star City casino after telling his wife and daughter he was going to Sydney for work.
106? How did it get that far?
