Slough man charged in forgery investigation
A 39 year old man has been charged on suspicion of being a member of an organised crime group responsible for the production and supply of false identity documents.
NCA investigators allege Oleksandr Sukhoviy has links to two men recently jailed following the discovery of an industrial scale forgery factory in Stratford, capable of producing tens of thousands of documents.
He was arrested at his home on Hampden Road, Slough, on Monday 1 October where officers recovered over £11,000 cash in various currencies and two Rolex watches.
He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Reading Crown Court on 5 November 2018.
NCA Branch Commander Mark McCormack said:
“This arrest forms part of an investigation into a criminal network suspected of supplying hundreds of false documents.
“Such documents are a key enabler of criminality. They can be used to help people gain work or services illegally, or potentially open bank accounts for the purposes of money laundering. The supply and production of them can also provide a lucrative revenue stream for crime groups.”
