A SUSPECTED Bromsgrove loan shark is due to appear at Redditch Magistrates Court on February 25.
The 48-year-old man was arrested and charged with illegal money lending and money laundering after his home was searched, in October.
Cash, documents and other evidence was seized as part of the investigation, carried out by England Illegal Money Lending Team, in conjunction with Worcestershire Regulatory Services and West Mercia Police.
Coun Lucy Hodgson, chair of the Worcestershire Regulatory Services Joint Committee, said: "Loan sharks can make people’s lives a misery, preying on the vulnerable.
"We will continue to work to make sure these offenders are caught."
Anyone wanting to report a loan shark can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the confidential hotline on 0300 555 2222.
