THE FORMER bosses of mobility aid firms in Long Eaton have appeared in court today facing charges of theft, fraud and money laundering.
Amarjit Gill, 50, who ran ABM Mobility in Long Eaton, and his wife Ranjit Gill, 44, both of Brackenfield Drive, Giltbrook, appeared at Derby Crown Court alongside David Messom, 27, of Maws Lane, Kimberley, and Samuel Routh, 25, of Wilkinson Close, Chilwell.
They all denied 37 charges connected with Long Eaton firms Virgo Healthcare and Lifestyle, both no longer trading.
The alleged offences, including the theft of tens of thousands of pounds from elderly people, relate to taking payment for mobility aids which were never delivered.
The four now face a two to three-week trial at the same court in September.
The charges have been brought as part of a two-year investigation by Derbyshire Trading Standards.
