A man who is alleged to have stolen property from the offices of two banks while working as a cleaner at both is due to face court later this month.

Both Suncorp Bank and NAB Bank of Dalby contacted police when they noticed several items go missing, including a sandwich toaster, coins from desks, a laminator, and mobile phones.

The items are believed to have been taken between September 15 and early November while the accused was working as a cleaner at both banks' premises in Cunningham Street.

Suspicious behaviour was also caught on the CCTV footage of Suncorp Bank.

A search warrant was executed at an address in Dalby where stolen goods were found.

Some property reported stolen from the banks is alleged to have been pawned to Cash It pawn brokers, however police have managed to recover those items.

The man will face court later this month on several counts of stealing and counts of fraud for pawning stolen property.

He is due to appear November 27 in Dalby Magistrates Court.
