Police raided two addresses as part of an investigation into elderly victims being conned into funding Jihadists’ trips to war-torn Syria.

The arrests – made under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) – form part of an investigation into a “large-scale” fraud, in which unsuspecting vulnerable and elderly victims are cold-called at home by a criminal impersonating a police officer.

The victims are told their bank account has been compromised and are then tricked into transferring money. One elderly victim lost around £150,000, police said.
