Eight family members charged with waste and money laundering offences

Eight members of the same family have been charged with waste management and money laundering offences after a swoop by police in the West Country.

All from the Bugle area of Cornwall, they were targeted in an investigation by the Environment Agency in conjunction with Devon and Cornwall Police.

They were charged with depositing waste without an environmental permit as well as with money laundering offences.

The eight people - two of them in their sixties - appeared at East Cornwall Magistrates Court in Bodmin on Tuesday 17 January for an initial hearing, where they were bailed to appear in front of the same magistrates on 14 March.

They are: Shirley Buckland, 62; Leroy Buckland, 32; Karl Buckland, 34; Shane Buckland, 35; Jason Buckland, 38; Albert Buckland, 66; James Crocker, 43; and Paul Crocker, 41.

Two further people were charged solely with waste management offences: Roseanne Buckland, 32; and Lyndsay Crocker, 42.

All 10 people were related either by blood or marriage.
