Six face fraud charges after Surrey Police raids

Six people have been charged with fraud offences after police raids to target economic crime across Surrey, Sussex and London.

More than 200 officers from Surrey Police carried out the raids on Tuesday and seized £100,000, credit cards, driving licences and passports.

High-value cars including an Audi RS4 and a Porsche Cayenne were also seized.

The raids followed an inquiry into organised crime by the force's economic crime unit money-laundering team.

Five men and a woman have been charged with conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to launder proceeds of crime, conspiracy to possess false identity documents for use in fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

Police said a seventh person arrested, a 60-year-old Brighton man, had been bailed.
