Police raid suspected brothels in organised crime crackdown

Suspected brothels in Maidenhead and Slough were raided last night as part of a police operation targeting organised crime.

Thames Valley Police executed warrants on properties in Cookham Road, Maidenhead and Cippenham Lane, Slough, along with six other houses in Reading, Milton Keynes and Newbury, and seized criminal assets.

The raids, conducted under the Proceeds of Crime Act, led to nine arrests in total, eight of which were for managing or assisting in managing a brothel.

In excess of £12,000 was seized.

Two women remain in custody.

The warrants were carried out as part of Operation Sentinel, aimed at tacking organised crime, which has so far led to 34 arrests and 21 cash seizures.
