Two men arrested in Carlisle after car clocking raids

Two men were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to defraud after a string of raids in an investigation into alleged car clocking.

Police confirmed that the suspects, aged 23 and 21, were held as part of the inquiry, in which officers carried out simultaneous searches at five homes in the west of Carlisle yesterday.

A woman, 61, from the city, was also arrested on suspicion of possessing class B drugs following the operation.

Police squads were deployed at 8am to three neighbouring streets – Dowbeck Road, Stanhope Road and Finn Avenue – between Wigton Road and Dalston Road.

Raids were also launched at two houses in Newlaithes Avenue, Morton.

Officers said they were investigating “a series of alleged frauds” where people were “suspected of buying high mileage cars, clocking them and selling them, purporting them to be of a lower mileage”.

The two arrested men, both from the city, were bailed until a later date. The woman who was arrested was released on police bail until June 13.
