The Australian police recently apprehended a 52-year old female suspect for illegal transactions of digital currencies for millions of dollars.
The woman was arrested in a Sidney shopping mall by the New South Wales State Police this Thursday. The police also confiscated some $40 000 in cash and 3.8 bitcoin.
According to the police reported the apprehended woman was part of crime syndicate that engages in illegal exchange of digital currencies.
The investigation into said activities was started back in 2018. Matthew Craft, Cybercrime Squad Commander issued the following statement: “It will be alleged as part of this investigation that the cryptocurrency wallet used by the individuals involved has transacted since 2017 over 326 Bitcoin.”
I wonder sort of criminal activity was funded with that money. I hope they find out.
