    Sydney raid uncovers Jackson memorabilia

    Michael Jackson memorabilia has been discovered during a raid on a Sydney office that was conducted as part of a multi-million dollar fraud investigation.

    Police said last Saturday's haul allegedly included two fedora-style hats autographed by Jackson, as well as 600 pieces of jewellery and cosmetics.

    Expensive champagne was also found among about 40 boxes in the Kent St office of a multi-national finance company, not yet named by police.

    Police said they later discovered the goods were part of an elaborate fraud scheme in which more than $20 million was allegedly stolen from the company and used to buy real estate, diamonds and other investment items.

    Inquiries have also led police to a paid order for a guitar, once owned by the late pop star.

    A 40-year-old female accounts manager from Castle Hill was arrested and charged with seven offences relating to a series of fraudulent fund transfers.

    Detectives are hoping to recover a large number of other items, allegedly purchased with the fraudulently obtained money and given away as gifts.

    Anyone in possession of such goods or who has information relating to the case is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333.
