By BBN Staff: Last Thursday Shanty’s Store in Corozal Town was searched by a special task force which included the Belize Police Department,  the Belize Tax Services and the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).

That search led to the discovery of US $60,000 as well as US $74,000 in different denominations.

Additionally the team found BZ $181 and CAN $350.

A whopping 1.6 million pesos, hundreds of quetzal and 122 rupees were also found.

Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, today revealed that the proprietors of the store were operating a “casa de cambio,” without a permit, an offense for which they will be charged.

According to Williams, they will face a string of other financial related charges.

In the meantime the monies found will be held by the Belize Police Department.

Williams indicated that this operation is a part of a larger operation to combat white collar crimes especially tax evasion and money laundering.
