One in seven of us knows someone who is living off the profits of crime.

That is according to latest stats from Devon and Cornwall Police.

They say since April, nearly 200 thousand pounds has been seized off criminals.

Detective Sergeant Maggie Waite says we can all help find them: "Everybody lives near someone who they think, well how can they afford to live that lifestyle? Their lifestyle is far, far bigger than you would expect them to be able to achieve on the sums of money they should genuinely receive from their employment, so what else are they doing?"
