A man has been extradited from Western Australia to NSW after being accused of defrauding a vulnerable person of over $400,000.

In June 2020, NSW detectives from the Cumberland Police Area Command began investigating reports that a 58-year-old man was defrauded of large sums of money.

Police say the man with intellectual disability became friends with a colleague who went to the bank with him several times between November 2014 and January 2016 and forced him to withdraw money.

With the help of WA police, the man (pictured) was arrested on Monday from a home in the Perth suburb of Kelmscott.

The man (pictured) was extradited to NSW on Wednesday and charged with knowingly dealing with the proceeds of the crime and fraudulently obtaining financial gain.
