Police Seize $240,000 in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY – Police participating in an operation targeting money laundering seized $240,000 over the weekend from two men in Guatemala City, the National Civilian Police, or PNC, said.

Isaac Rodriguez, 33, and Pablo de Jesus Schulz, 35, were arrested while transporting the money Saturday through an upscale section of the capital.

Officers also seized four cell phones, a vehicle and other items from the suspects.

The suspects were charged with money laundering and the funds were turned over to prosecutors.

Police arrested another suspect, identified as Rolando Zarceño, in a separate operation and seized about $66,000 in counterfeit currency in the southern city of Mixco, the PNC said.

Guatemalan money laundering laws require citizens to file a report with authorities any time they plan to transport or remove more than $10,000 from the country.

Money laundering is punishable by a prison sentence of six to 20 years and a fine ranging from $10,000 to $625,000.

The security forces have seized more than $1.2 million in cash this year in operations in the capital targeting money laundering. EFE
