Two Fraud Arrests By Shannon Cops

Updated:13:27, Monday April 14, 2008


Detectives investigating the disappearance of schoolgirl Shannon Matthews have arrested two people on suspicion of fraud.

The suspects from Dewsbury Moor were seized by West Yorkshire Police.

It follows on-going inquiries into why nine-year-old Shannon vanished on February 19.

She was discovered hidden in the base of a bed in a flat in Batley Carr, a mile from her home in Dewsbury after a 24-day search by police.

The fraud arrests were carried out in conjunction with officials from the Dept of Work and Pensions.

Detectives said the charges were not connected with the girl's alleged abduction.

A number of people have been taken into custody since the girl was discovered.

The partner of Shannon's mother Craig Meehan, 22, has been refused bail after being accused of child porn offences.

Meehan's uncle, Michael Donovan, 39, of Lidgate Gardens, Batley Carr, has been charged with Shannon's kidnap and imprisonment.

His trial has been provisionally set for November 11 at Leeds Crown Court.

The girl's mother Karen Matthews, 32, is charged with child neglect and perverting the course of justice.

She was remanded in custody and will next appear at Leeds Crown Court on April 16.

Meehan's mother Alice, 49, and her daughters Amanda Hyett, 25, and Caroline Meehan, 29, were also arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

All three were later released on bail pending further inquiries.

But as far as I can see Craig had NO involvement in Shannon's 'disappearance'.

He has not been charged with anything regarding her disappearance - only the computer images thing.

K Matthews on the other hand has a list of charges, including benefit fraud and possibly the neglect charges relate to incidents not connected with Shannon's 'disappearance' - Karen has a number of other children as well remember.

Rather than just 'being involved' it seems that Karen was the main instigator of the whle thing and it is quite likely that Craig didn't know about it.

Hence why he didn't think to clear his computer of incriminating stuff as he didn't think there was any reason why anyone would be investigating the family.

Do you think she planned all this without involving Craig?

i thought Shannon wanted to be with her father.
It's maybe just me, but I'm not so sure Grandparents are the best choice.
The charade must go on.
