Two more arrested in fraud and money laundering probe

New arrests have been made by detectives investigating a case of alleged fraud involving a police officer.

The inquiry was announced in February by Norfolk Police when three people, including a police constable, were arrested by a special operations unit.

The officer has been suspended from duty pending the outcome of the investigation.

Two men were arrested on Monday on suspicion of blackmail, the force said.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "The first man, in his 30s, was one of three people arrested in Norwich last month for alleged fraud and money laundering offences."

He said the man had been questioned and released on bail.

The second man, in his 40s, was arrested at an address in Norwich and has also been released on bail.

Two women arrested last month in connection with the inquiry remain on police bail.
