Men with millions in suitcases stopped at Central station drew attention of rail staff and passenger

15 Mar 11

Rail staff aboard the Indian Pacific train from Perth first noticed two men acting suspiciously, who were later found to have millions in cash in their suitcases.
The men were stopped and searched by Sydney police when the train terminated at Central Station on Saturday morning.
A fellow passenger on the train also alerted authorities about their behaviour.
Police allegedly found $2.5 million in cash in their two suitcases mostly in $50 notes.
A 25-year-old man from Auburn and a 26-year-old from Sydney, were charged with recklessly dealing in the proceeds of crime. They were released on bail and will appear in Downing Centre Local Court on April 19.
Acting Inspector Alex Liouthakis said police did not know where the money came from.
"The police case will hinge on the unexplainability of why somebody would have that enormous amount of money, yet not have a reasonable explanation as to where it came from," he said.
Police are appealing to members of the public for information.

Yeah, saw that going down when i got off the IP on Saturday, saw the police had one in hand cuffs and sitting with his back against the carraige for YHA backpackers and the cash sitting on top of a back pack on the platform. My first though was that it involed drugs or drug money, I think they were travelling in the Red service as the Red carraiges were behind the loco and in that section of the platform, I did not see them in the Gold section of the train. Oh well I have a little idea of what was going on now. :confused

I was a good thing you kept well clear of that shit going down. Any half competent copper would arrest you on sight for mere criminal suspicion.
