DETECTIVES investigating an alleged £2.2m rogue trader scam have charged a man with fraud and money laundering offences.

Danny Shea, 45, a builder, of Royal Drive, Bordon, was charged with 10 offences of fraud and money laundering. He will appear on bail at Aldershot Magistrates’ Court on March 8.

A 24-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman arrested at the same time have been released without charge.

The charges relate to offences across East Hampshire and Surrey where homeowners paid money for renovation work that was never completed.

A total of £2,293,250 is alleged to have been obtained in this way, and the money laundering charge relates to the same total amount.
