Yorkshire motorhome dealership at centre of major fraud investigation

Three individuals, including two men and a woman, were apprehended on suspicion of fraud and money laundering at Steve Mann Caravans in Harrogate, according to reports.

Police took action on Tuesday as part of an extensive investigation, detaining a 65-year-old man, a 38-year-old man, and a 62-year-old woman.

They were subsequently released pending further inquiries, The Yorkshire Post reported, citing the North Yorkshire force.

Approximately 50 individuals are believed to have been impacted, with several purportedly being customers of the caravan dealership.

The Post quoted North Yorkshire Police as stating: “Three people have been arrested on suspicion of fraud and money laundering in connection with a caravan business in North Yorkshire.

“The arrests are part of a complex investigation by North Yorkshire Police into the company. Officers are investigating fraud offences involving around 50 victims.”

“A 38-year-old man, a 62-year-old woman, and a 65-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of fraud and money laundering on Tuesday 30 April 2024. They have since been released and remain under investigation,” the police force added.

“As is usual with complex investigations of this nature, it is anticipated that inquiries will take a long time to complete.

“If anyone believes they may be affected by the investigation, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information for reference number 12240018133.”
