Four women have this morning (17 April) been arrested in connection with an on-going fraud investigation at a Birmingham school.
The quartet − all aged in their 40s − were arrested at around 7am from separate addresses in Birmingham and Solihull and are now in police custody being questioned by detectives.
It’s alleged the women were involved in a bogus resignation letters plot at Adderley Primary School in Saltley.
Detectives from West Midlands Police’s Economic Crime Unit are leading the investigation which is not connected with Birmingham City Council’s enquiry into the so called ‘Trojan Horse’ allegations.
A 47-year-old woman was arrested from an address in Ward End, a 40-year-old from Sparkhill, a 45-year-old from a house in Alum Rock and a 47-year-old picked up from an address in Solihull.
All are currently being questioned at a Birmingham police station.
