Queensland Police discover $4million in car boot during ‘random’ search

Queensland Police discovered more than $4 million in cash after officers performed a “random intercept”.

The driver has since been charged with money laundering.

Queensland officers said a police patrol observed a man acting suspiciously near a vehicle parked before placing a large suitcase in the boot of this vehicle as they approached.

Officers spoke to the 28-year-old, who became nervous and elusive.

“Do you want to tell me what’s in that bag?” they asked the man.

After cutting zip ties off a bag, officers located more than $4.1 million of Australian dollars wrapped in plastic inside two suitcases.
