It was a control quite banal for the police officers of the BAC of Toulouse. But during this one, the police will get their hands on a nice pactole. Indeed, two Venezuelans were arrested Tuesday night at the bus station in Toulouse while they were carrying 2.5 million euros in small denominations, we learned from sources close to the investigation.
The money was in the two suitcases of these two Venezuelan nationals, a 36-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, arrested by the Anti-Crime Brigade (BAC) of Toulouse, says a source close to the investigation.
They were arrested Tuesday around 18 p.m. at the bus station in Toulouse while they were traveling by bus, says a police source.
Leaving Paris, they were going to Barcelona with this amount of money in their luggage, we learn from a source close to the file.
They were placed in police custody, while the investigation opened was entrusted to the Toulouse judicial police, in view of the amount seized.
Remember that in France, there is a maximum amount that you can have on you in cash and it amounts to € 10,000.
