Over 200 Thames Valley Police officers carried out warrants near Wantage that led to five arrests in connection with money laundering and tax offences.

The warrants took place in Woodhill Lane, East Challow and Faringdon Road, Stanford in the Vale.

Officers conducted a search of premises, outbuildings and cars within the grounds.

The searches resulted in officers seizing a range of property including large quantities of cash and high-value jewellery and recovering a suspected stolen JCB.

Five people were arrested as a result of the warrants.

Thames Valley Police led the operation and were supported by HMRC, Department for Work and Pensions, Environment Agency and Government Agency Intelligence Network (GAIN).
