Man charged with bank theft
A man accused of theft from a bank and an attempt to steal a further $74,000 is expected to appear in Supreme Court next month.
Tuan Nguyen, 34, was charged in Magistrates’ Court yesterday with the theft of $6,080 from Clarien Bank and an attempt to steal a further $74,907.
The incidents are alleged to have taken place between June 22 and July 2.
Mr Nguyen is also charged with attempting to steal an unknown amount of money from HSBC on June 22.
Mr Nguyen, whose home country is unknown, did not enter a plea as the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.
Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday that the offences were allegedly carried out through fraudulent gift cards.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe remanded Mr Nguyen in custody and adjourned the case until July 12 for a bail hearing.
Mr Nguyen is expected to appear in Supreme Court in August.
