A man from Milton Keynes has been charged with conspiracy to steal in connection with an alleged £1.3m cyber-fruad at a branch of Barclays Bank in London.

Adam Raeburn Jefferson, 38, of Newport Road, New Bradwell, was one of three men arrested on Tuesday by officers from the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit investigating the theft of £1.3 million from the Swiss Cottage branch of Barclays in April.

The other men, both from London, are Lanre Mullins-Abudu, 25, and 24-year-old Duane Jean-Jaque – a former employee of Barclays.

All have been charged with conspiracy to steal and have been bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, October 15.

Previously, four men were charged on September 21 in connection with the theft.
