Bulgaria: Australia Police Arrest Two for Alleged Transfers of Stolen Money to Bulgaria

Australian police have arrested two alleged members of a trans-national organised crime group that funnelled money stolen from automatic teller machines (ATMs) across Australia to Bulgaria, The Guardian reported on Monday.

Queensland detectives have charged two men with money laundering as part of an alleged scam operating across three Australian states.

Police claim that a 48-year-old man from Palm Beach and a 40-year-old man from Southport allegedly acted as money “mules” for the organized crime syndicat, transferring about ,000 to a number of people in Bulgaria, according to The Guardian.
