WANTED MAN: Police hunt Bushey money launderer after he fails to appear for sentencing

 Published on: 23rd September 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

The National Crime Agency (NCA) is on the hunt for a money launderer with ties to class A drug production in Bushey.

Jamaican international Lenn Mayhew-Lewis, 68, from Surrey, played a leading role laundering money for criminals and was arrested in July 2020.

Mayhew-Lewis moved cash across a network of bank accounts, with a fee taken in the process, in order to disguise and clean drug dealers’ dirty money. On some occasions, Mayhew-Lewis used companies registered overseas and operated them under the guise of investment platforms.

Ian Myles-Harris utilised Mayhew-Lewis’ services. He was convicted in 2020 after his car was stopped by police and evidence of class A drug production was found at his house in Bushey.

Myles-Harris was part of a wider organised crime group who were collectively sentenced to more than 156 years in prison.

After failing to appear at a sentencing hearing in March 2023, Mayhew-Lewis was sentenced in his absence to five years in prison for money laundering. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

The NCA issued a plea for assistance in tracking down Mayhew-Lewis in July, with the wanted criminal still missing as BUSHEYnews went to print.

Jason Hulme, from the NCA’s International Corruption Unit, said: “Mayhew-Lewis has been on the run since March this year. If anyone has information that could help us locate him, please contact the NCA or Crimestoppers anonymously.”

Anyone with information can contact the NCA on 0370 496 7622 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
