Detective Acting Inspector Adam Bennett urged people to remain vigilant to this type of offending.

"Unfortunately through the dishonest actions of an employee, this family business has experienced a significant financial loss," he said.

"This is a timely reminder of the risks of employee fraud and the need for businesses and companies to show ongoing vigilance and regularly review purchasing and financial procedures and processes."

The man was due to face Brisbane Magistrates Court today charged with one count of fraud dishonest application of property of another.
