Pair charged over illicit tobacco bust

A joint investigation into an alleged criminal syndicate selling illicit tobacco has led to the arrest of two men.

As reported by the AAP, the pair of men – one a 68-year-old from the Gold Coast, the other a 55-year-old from NSW – have each been charged with money laundering.

The arrests follow an investigation involving federal agencies, Queensland and NSW police, which reportedly seized a total of 57 million illegal cigarettes.

They will be tried in Southport Magistrates Court on 17 July.
