Even as the B.C. government reviews a pair of reports on money laundering, court documents obtained by CBC reveal an investigation into a Richmond man allegedly linked to thousands of dollars worth of suspicious casino transactions.
According to information sworn to obtain a search warrant, the Richmond RCMP’s organized crime unit arrested the man for money laundering during a traffic stop last month.
CBC is not identifying the suspect or any of his alleged associates as they have not been formally charged.
At the time of his arrest, the court documents say the man was carrying $10,000 worth of $100 Canadian bills bundled into two stacks, tied by a red elastic band and stuck into his left chest jacket pocket.
