Former Port Lincoln man deported from Thailand, charged with fraud

Detectives from SAPOL's Anti-Corruption Branch have arrested a Victorian man who was wanted over offences allegedly committed in South Australia in 2012, after he was deported from Thailand to Melbourne on Thursday.

Police allege the 32-year-old, previously of Port Lincoln, improperly obtained money from the Victims of Crime Compensation Fund in South Australia in 2012, when several other suspects were arrested in connection with the matter.

The man was extradited to South Australia from Victoria on Friday where he was taken in to custody.

He was charged with six counts of aiding and abetting abuse of public office and six counts of dishonest dealing with documents.

His bail was refused and he will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Monday.
