Dirty money?: $400,000 of laundered money found inside washing machine

Police were searching a vacant house in Amsterdam Nieuw-West when they found a washing machine packed with a very unusual load of mixed colors, in the form of bundles of blue €20 and orange €50 notes.

It isn’t certain that the money is being laundered, but its hiding place suggests it’s dirty money.

Authorities also found a money-counting machine, a gun and several mobile phones at the house, which further suggest a cycle of crime had come out in the wash.

A 24-year-old man who was at the premises at the time found himself hung out to dry when he was arrested on suspicion of money laundering, presumably after he failed to put a positive spin on why the money was hidden.
