A TRIAL is due to begin today in a second case where Thames Valley Police sent undercover officers into a scrapyard.
Police raided Smiths of Bloxham, in Milton, near Banbury, in May last year and charged five men as part of Operation Symphony.
Peter Smith, 68, of Bloxham Road, Bloxham; Tommy Smith, 36, of Bloxham Road, Bloxham; Joey Smith, 23, of Milton Road, Adderbury; Henry Penfold, 21, of Tadmarton Road, Bloxham; and Matthew Miles, 25, of Main Street, Great Bourton, all deny charges of attempting to acquire and convert criminal property.
The men, who will appear at Oxford Crown Court, are all on bail.
