June 8 2018

Over $30 million in cash and a number of high-end motor vehicles were seized during a marathon police operation yesterday, marking the culmination of a high-level, multiagency money-laundering investigation that is pointing to a political figure, law enforcement sources have revealed.

One person was taken into custody during the early morning operation in Old Harbour, St Catherine, which lasted all day, sources revealed. According to one source, the suspect was grilled for hours by police investigators.

“[The suspect] has indicated that the money was received from a political figure to be invested,” police investigators told The Gleaner last night.
