A 40-year-old man arrested in Spain has appeared in court facing 156 theft and fraud charges.
The offences are alleged to have happened at a company in Witney, over a period of three years.
Oliver Trusgnach, of Calle can Marti Feluiu, Palma De Mallorca, Spain, was sent back to the UK, where he was charged, Thames Valley Police said.
Trusgnach was detained in Spain under a European Arrest Warrant on Monday, July 7.
He was sent back to the UK 10 days later and was charged by Thames Valley Police last Thursday.
Cheques and money are alleged to have been stolen from a Witney-based company between Monday, April 17, 2000, and Thursday, July 31, 2003, the force claimed.
Thames Valley Police were last night unable to provide details on what company was reported to have been affected.
Police said that Trusgnach first appeared at Banbury Magistrates’ Court on Friday, July 18.
He was held in custody and appeared at Oxford Crown Court yesterday, after which he was remanded on custody.
Trusgnach will now appear at a plea and case management hearing, due to take place at Oxford Crown Court on Friday, October 10.
