The caretaker, a Sri Lankan national, was remanded in custody on Wednesday following a complaint he misappropriated up to 17.8 million rupees ($154,000) from the X-Files star’s property at Pasyala, a village outside Colombo.

"We arrested the man following a complaint that he criminally misappropriated funds entrusted to him to manage the property," police spokesman Ajith Rohana said.

He said investigations were under way and a magistrate on Wednesday ordered the suspect to be held until January 4 to allow police more time to complete their investigations.
