A woman has been charged following investigations into the alleged fraud of a business in Murwillumbah.

Detectives from Tweed Heads Local Area Command began investigations after receiving reports that a former employee of a local business had allegedly defrauded the company of funds, estimated to be in excess of $1,300,000.

Subsequent inquiries established that the woman had allegedly defrauded the business since December 2009, before she was dismissed in March 2017.

About 11am yesterday (Tuesday 9 May 2017), investigators attended a home in Bray Park and executed a search warrant.

Officers seized documentation and electronic devices which will be forensically examined.

A 40-year-old woman was arrested at the scene.

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 2017.

Further charges are expected.
