Man charged with money laundering after $4.1 million found in car

A man has been charged with money laundering after Queensland Police found more than $4 million in the boot of a car in a “random intercept”.

Police said a patrol noticed the man acting suspiciously near a vehicle at Calamvale in Brisbane’s south on Saturday and when officers approached, the 28-year-old placed a large suitcase in the car boot.

After the man became “nervous and elusive” when questioned, officers searched his car and found about $4.1 million in cash wrapped in vacuum sealed bags inside two suitcases.

Police said the man had entered Queensland from New South Wales last week, and also charged him with failure to comply with a COVID-19 direction.

The man was remanded in custody on Monday and will next appear in court in Brisbane on December 6.
