Seven arrested for fraud and theft in Redbridge crackdown on crime profits
Seven people were arrested in Redbridge today as police swooped on people profiting from crime.
Operation Stimtone was launched across London to take down key figures in organised criminal networks, gang members and street offenders.
Police targeted criminals by investigating their financial activities, which can link people to profits from dug dealing, prostitution, handling stolen goods and other offences.
The arrests in Redbridge were made for fraud and theft.
Det Insp Craig Robinson, of Redbridge CID, said: ”This is a significant operation against those who commit fraud and launder money.
