Appeal for information to trace wanted man  

Officers from the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) are appealing for information from the public on the whereabouts of a man wanted in connection with fraud and money laundering offences. 

David Farrah-Tunnicliffe, aged 50, is wanted on a bench warrant to appear in court charged with four counts of money laundering, four counts of fraud and having a British passport under his control in the course of or in connection with fraud.   

Farrah-Tunnicliffe is white, 5ft 7ins, of medium build, with brown eyes, light-coloured hair and may have a goatee-style beard. 

He was due to attend Hove Crown Court on 20 January but failed to appear. 

Farrah-Tunnicliffe has links to the South East of England, specifically Brighton and London, Jersey, Guernsey and the South of France. 

Between April 2019 and May 2020 numerous victims from across the United Kingdom were defrauded. This involved money laundering from investment and invoice fraud. SEROCU has been investigating the offences. 

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Maria Isom, of SEROCU, said: “We are keen to arrest Farrah-Tunnicliffe as soon as possible so that he can go before a court to face charges of money laundering and fraud.  

“If you see him, please call us on 999 or if you have information about his whereabouts, call our non-emergency number 101.” 

If you have information about Farrah-Tunnicliffe’s location please contact Sussex Police via 101 quoting crime reference number 47200026750 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
