Three people have been arrested after police seized large numbers of suspected stolen phones, laptops and other electricals from a shop in Leeds.

Officers executed a warrant at Cash Conversions, on Harehills Lane, Harehills this morning (Monday).

They spent much of the day removing goods from the store, which buys and sells phones, tablet computers, games consoles and other gadgets.

The shop, which is not connected to Cash Converters, also offers a buy-back service, under which customers sell items to the store and can buy them back at a later date at higher prices.

The manager, a 35-year-old man, was arrested along with a 34-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman on suspicion of fraud.

Today’s raid followed a similar police swoop on Gadgets Fix in the city centre last Wednesday, which also saw three people arrested.
