A 47-year-old Robe man has been arrested for over 100 counts of theft.
The alleged thefts occurred over a period of three years. Police will allege the victim had given the suspect permission to access his cheque book to pay contractors to build a house. However, on inspection of the property, the victim located only a vacant block of land.
The man was charged and bailed to appear in the Victor Harbor Magistrates Court on December 2.
