Former Hammer charged with fraud and money laundering

BLAIRA former West Ham player has been charged with fraud and money laundering.

Blair Turgott, a Hammers youth player, is due to appear in court later this month following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s fraud and linked crime online (Falcon) unit.

The 22-year-old, of Ravensmead Road in Bromley, faces one count of fraud by false representation and one count of converting criminal property. Turgott made one first-team appearance for the Hammers, in the FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest in January 2014.

Turgott is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday April 28.
