A MAN has appeared in court charged with stealing more than £750,000 from a Redditch bank.

Benjamin Sookia of Outwood Close, Oakenshaw, is alleged to have taken £752,115 from the town centre Halifax branch where he worked as a counter support officer and monitored ATM cash levels as well as maintaining the machines.

Money was taken from account used to supply funds to an ATM machine between September 2011 and July 2012.

The 26-year-old, who has been suspended from work, entered no plea against three counts of theft by an employee totalling £187,115 and a further three counts of fraud by abuse of position worth £565,000.

He was released on bail to appear at Redditch Magistrates' Court on Monday, February 25.
