A man stopped on a routine search by police was later found to have half-a-million pounds stuffed into a home-made void behind a toilet. When he was asked by officers what items he had in the car, Peter Wells admitted he had £80,000 in a holdall, which he said was for buying trousers. When he could not say where the large number of notes had come from, Wells was arrested on suspicion of money laundering. The officers linked Wells with a chalet in Kent and a search uncovered the half-a-million hoard in the WC facilities.
