The Guardia Civil in Mijas have detained a man for money laundering and bribery. He was stopped at a police traffic check at the Rivero del Sol development, and he tried to bribe the officers with a large quantity of cash found in the boot of his car.
The man, who lives in Gibraltar, and his two passengers were identified. When the police searched the car and found the money in the boot, the man said it was to buy a property, but could not justify where the money came from. When he realised he was about to be arrested, he repeatedly tried to bribe the officers with it.
