A suspected loan shark has been charged with illegal money lending.
The 52-year-old Kingston man was arrested after the England Illegal Money Lending Team executed a warrant to search his home in July last year.
Working in partnership with Kingston Council, the Team seized documentation during the raid.
The suspect will appear before Lavender Hill magistrates on March 26.
Nationally the Illegal Money Lending Teams have secured 220 prosecutions for illegal money lending and related activity, leading to more than 150 years’ worth of custodial sentences.
They have written off almost £40 million worth of illegal debt and helped over 19,000 victims.
