Co-op bank worker arrested

A Larnaca Co-op bank worker has been arrested on suspicion of stealing money from a depositor, police announced on Thursday.

The manager of a company that sells water through automatic machines reported that during 2016 though deposits had increased, the current account of the company in a particular co-op bank showed a negative balance.

“Yesterday during a coordinated operation, the aforementioned manager took the amount of €2,970 in various coins to the specific credit institution for deposit, handing it over to the Co-op for counting and depositing. Upon receipt of proof of deposit, it was found that in the account of the company the sum of €2,551 has been deposited instead of €2,970,” a police statement on Thursday said.

During previous deposits, the manager had handed over amounts to a specific employee to count and deposit without having counted the money himself.

A judicial warrant was issued against the 31-year-old employee who was arrested and held.

Police say that through an audit carried out, it appears that some €25,000 seems to have been stolen during 2016

Larnaca CID are continuing investigations.
