The RCMP announced the arrest and deportation of an alleged money launderer.
RCMP said Dan Bui Shun Jin, who was using Richmond’s River Rock Casino, was arrested on May 25, a few days after he arrived in B.C.
RCMP say Jin is suspected of laundering $855 million through Australian casinos.
The U.S. has also issued a warrant for his arrest for fraud over $1.4 million.
Authorities say Jin was carrying more than $75,000 at the time of his arrest.
A search warrant executed at his hotel room uncovered documents of Jin’s involvement in a money movement scheme through Vancouver International Airport, according to the Mounties.
Jin was issued a deportation order and is being held in detention pending his removal.
