A former Norwich police officer and his wife, a serving officer with Norfolk Constabulary, are two of the people to have been arrested as part of an ongoing fraud investigation, it has emerged.

Ex-policeman Ben Staff is understood to be one of three people arrested in Norwich in February on suspicion of fraud and money laundering offences.

Mr Staff, who quit the force in 2008, was further arrested on suspicion of blackmail by detectives from the Eastern Region Specialist Operations Unit (ERSOU) at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre last month where he 
was questioned and later released on bail.

Mr Staff’s wife Catriona, who is a serving PC with Norfolk Constabulary, was arrested in February on suspicion of alleged offences, including fraud and money laundering, and remains on police bail pending further inquiries.

Norfolk Constabulary previously issued a statement which revealed the Norfolk police constable had been suspended from duty until the outcome of the criminal investigation and that the matter had been referred – as was routine – to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

A man in his 40s was arrested at an address in Norwich last month on suspicion of blackmail and has since been released on bail pending further inquiries.

And a woman, in her 50s, was arrested in Norwich in February by detectives from ERSOU on suspicion of alleged fraud offences and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

We visited Mr Staff at his address in Thorpe St Andrew but he was not in.
