Pedestrian In Collision With A BMW On The Avenue On Friday Night
Hampshire Man Charged With £2m Fraud
Detectives investigating an alleged rogue trader scheme have charged a man with fraud and money laundering offences.
Danny Shea, 45, a builder, of Royal Drive, Bordon, Hampshire, was charged on 23 February, when he answered police bail, with ten offences of fraud, and with money laundering. He will appear on bail at Aldershot Magistrates Court on Thursday 8 March.
Two other people who had been arrested at the same time as Shea on Tuesday 20 September last year on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud, and also later bailed, are to have no action taken against them.
They are a 24-year old man arrested at an address in Greatham, Hampshire, and a 46-year old woman arrested at an address in Royal Drive, Bordon.
Police and financial investigators have been following up claims that house owners in North East Hampshire and Surrey have paid money for renovations and rebuilding that has not been completed.
The ten fraud charges relate to alleged offences at addresses in Banstead, Thursley, Chiddingfold, Tadworth, and Chertsey in Surrey, and Farnborough and Grayshott in Hampshire, between 2007 and 2009.
A total of £2,293,250 is alleged to have been obtained in this way, and the money laundering charge relates to that same total amount.
Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.
James Hemming pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after a 17-year-old girl was badly injured in Fratton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
