Police have raided four properties as part of an investigation into money laundering.

Hertfordshire police officers executed warrants at four private addresses in Stevenage last Wednesday (February 21).

Officers, including special constables, targeted properties in Burydale, Lyndale, Rockingham Way and The Spur between 8am and 1pm.

Items have been seized, including documentation and mobile phones, and the police investigation remains ongoing.

The raid in Burydale took place during the morning school run, with parents taking their children to Shephalbury Park Primary School, which is in the same street, concerned about the police presence.

One mum, who did not want to be identified, said: “It’s unnerving to see lots of police vans, scientific services and sniffer dogs so close to my children’s school.”
