Six people have been arrested by police investigating a major money-laundering operation, Lancashire Police have said.
The five men and one woman were held during early morning raids in Blackburn, Darwen, Billington, and Cottam, Preston on Thursday.
All have been taken to police stations in the county where they are being interviewed by detectives.
The arrests follow an eight-month enquiry by officers from the force's Serious and Organised Crime Unit.
