Police in Christchurch have arrested a man accused of defrauding his employer.

A construction company laid a complaint when accounting irregularities were discovered in the year to October.

It is alleged the employee received more than $139,000 from 16 customers by issuing invoices with a personal bank account number for payments to be made to.

A 26-year-old Christchurch man has been charged with theft and will appear in Christchurch District Court today.
