Three more men have been arrested and charged over an alleged £1.3million cyber fraud at Barclays in Swiss Cottage – including a former employee of the bank from South Hampstead.
The men were arrested on Tuesday by the Met’s Cyber Crime Unit as investigations continue into the theft at the Finchley Road branch in April, in which a group allegedly gained access to accounts by taking control of the bank’s computer system.
All three were charged yesterday with conspiracy to steal and have each been bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, October 15.
They are Duane Jean-Jaque, 24, a former Barclays employee of Belsize Road, South Hampstead; Adam Jefferson, 38, of Newport Road, Milton Keynes; and Lanre Mullins-Abudu, 25, of no fixed abode.
Four men were charged previously on Saturday September 21.
Michael Harper, 26, an estate agent of Kiln Place, Gospel Oak, and Lewis Murphy, 39, of Ebury Bridge Road, Victoria, were both charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation, Darius Bolder, 34, also of Ebury Bridge Road, is accused with conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to steal, and Tony Colston-Hayter, 47, of Seymour Street, Marble Arch, is charged with conspiracy to steal.
All four will appear at Southwark Crown Court on 13 December.
