A former ANZ Queenstown bank manager has been arrested in relation to an alleged $400,000 theft spanning three years.

Queenstown police have arrested and charged a 29-year-old Queenstown woman, a former bank employee at 5pm on Thursday in relation to alleged fraud between 2010 and last year.

The charges relate to the woman allegedly using a computer system for a dishonest purpose and five charges of theft by person in a special relationship.

The woman allegedly set up more than a dozen fictitious accounts and transferred monies between accounts to the tune of $402,000.

The woman is no longer employed by the bank, police say.

ANZ declined to comment.

The woman is expected to appear in the Queenstown District Court on Monday.
