Wolverhampton man to pay National Crime Agency £110,000
National Crime Agency
A man from Wolverhampton has agreed to pay the National Crime Agency £110,000 following a Civil Recovery and Tax investigation into his property dealings.
The Agency alleges that Kyle St. Clair, 32, funded the purchase of property through the proceeds of crime including tax evasion, money laundering and fraud.
The NCA also asserted that St. Clair laundered criminal funds from tax evasion through the purchase of properties, and that he employed a laundering process involving the use of third parties in an attempt to conceal the fact that he was the true beneficial owner of the properties. Both properties were located in Wolverhampton, and included his residential address in Upper Penn.
