Two men arrested in the North as part of an investigation into suspected multi-million pound money laundering fraud were still being questioned by the PSNI today.
Around £100,000 in cash seized during raids yesterday linked to a probe into organised crime including drug trafficking, the North's Revenue and Customs said.
One man was arrested on the A1 near Banbridge, the other in Lisburn in a joint operation by the Police Service and Revenue & Customs.
Both men are from the border city of Newry, Co Down.
John Whiting, assistant director of criminal investigation at Revenue and Customs, said: “Money is the lifeblood of organised criminality.
“Anyone with information about money laundering, or any type of criminal activity involving smuggling or tax evasion can contact Revenue and Customs.”
Customs and police officers have extended powers to seize money suspected of being the proceeds of crime or for use in crime.
