Two More Arrests In Norfolk Fraud Investigation

Police have made two further arrests in connection with an on-going fraud investigation in Norfolk.

Two men were arrested yesterday morning at separate addresses in Norwich and Newcastle by detectives from the Eastern Region Specialist Operations Unit (ERSOU), who are heading the enquiry.

The 29 year old man from Newcastle and 65 year old man, from Norwich, were both arrested and questioned by police on suspicion of money laundering. The 65 year old was released on police bail yesterday evening. The 29 year old has also subsequently been bailed pending further enquiries.

A total to six people have now been arrested in relation to the investigation which involves allegations of fraud, money laundering and blackmail.

Two men and two women, including a serving Norfolk police officer, were arrested in March and also remain on police bail.

The police constable has been suspended from duty pending the outcome of criminal investigation.

ERSOU is a specialist unit with a remit for tackling serious and organised crime in the eastern region and is made up of resources from Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire police.
