German customs arrests man with 500,000 euros in car | Car

An arrest warrant had already been issued against the 44-year-old driver in another matter. He was therefore arrested on the spot. The man seemed to be getting more and more nervous during the inspection on Sept. 2, according to a statement from the main customs office in Krefeld. The officers therefore searched his car and discovered a specially prepared metal box ‘with a secret lock’ in the back.

Even within the EU, cash amounts of more than 10,000 euros must be reported orally when officials request it when crossing the border, the spokesman said. The 44-year-old man did not. The fines in such cases are considerable, they can amount to a million euros.

As a rule, about a quarter of the unreported amount is fined and even more if the money was intentionally hidden. The purpose of the notification requirement is to prevent illegal money transport across borders and to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and crime.
