Police Bust Alleged $100 Million Money-Laundering Syndicate

Two men and a woman have been charged over an alleged $100 million money-laundering syndicate operating in southwest Sydney.

Two men aged 29 and 30 were arrested at a business in Guildford West on Thursday morning, followed a short while later by the arrest of a 30-year-old woman at a home in Merrylands West.

Three search warrants were executed at the Merrylands West home, the Guildford West business and a second business in Sydney's CBD.
