Money laundering Brit tries to bribe police


A BRITISH man who was arrested in Mijas for money laundering allegedly tried to bribe the arresting Guardia Civil officers.

The police had stopped a car carrying a Spaniard and two Britons due to their suspicious behaviour. On searching the vehicle, they found €345,000 in cash in the boot.

When questioned about the amount, the man said he was intending to buy a house locally but could not offer “in any way the legal provenance of that large a sum of money”, according to police.

When the officers started to arrest the man for money laundering, he “repeatedly” tried to bribe them with the cash, they say.

The money has now been handed over to the Judicial Authority.
