Six Arrested in Money-Laundering Inquiry

Six men have been arrested in West Sussex and Hampshire as part of an investigation into a money laundering ring.

At around 6am on Tuesday September the 28th, around 50 officers from Hampshire Constabulary executed a total of eight warrants at addresses in Bognor Regis, and one address in Laburnum Grove, Portsmouth.
The six men arrested are all in their late twenties and early 30s, and are all Eastern European.  They have been taken into custody at police stations in Hampshire where they will be questioned later today.
Today’s warrants are part of an ongoing investigation by the Serious and Organised Crime Unit into a money laundering operation based in Bognor Regis and operating in Hampshire and Sussex.
