Emmen – Two suspects were arrested during police actions on Flintstraat and Meerveld in Emmen on Monday, January 22. These are men aged 35 and 63 from Emmen. They are suspected of laundering criminally obtained money.
Research into money flows
The police started an investigation into financial flows of one of the suspects based on signals that he may have been engaged in criminal activities. In addition, several anonymous reports about this suspect were received. The man allegedly drives exclusive vehicles and wears expensive clothing, without having any explicable assets for this. The second suspect was also identified in this investigation.
Cars, cash and luxury goods
During the action, two cars, cash and a large number of luxury goods such as designer clothing, bags, jewelry and watches were seized. Money is the driving force behind almost all forms of crime. By confiscating the money and luxury goods, a suspect is hit in the place that hurts the most: the wallet. Taking criminal money and luxury goods obtained with criminal money is an important part of the fight against crime.
