Pro Tip: Don't Try Buying a Lamborghini With $148K in Laundered Cash
There are brilliant criminals that create devious plans to rob banks, steal cars, and cause mayhem. And then there's Lyndon Hudson, who is a criminal, but doesn't quite qualify for the 'brilliant' category. He tried to pay for a $148,000 Lamborghini with cash from his money laundering activities. Not being a criminal, I'm not sure of the proper procedure here, but I'm thinking that showing up with that much cash in your pocket attracts the attention of the local authorities in a heartbeat. Hudson, who lives in Leeds, was quickly nabbed by the coppers and hit with $785,000 in fines as well as jail time. RELATED: See Photos of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan
Hudson ran a jewelry store that sold counterfeit goods and conducted most of his business in cash. He also failed to keep records of his business dealings which led to an investigation into the man's business.
According to Yorkshire Evening Post, Hudson is now in jail for 18 months and has to pay his $785,000 fine in full within three months. The police have already seized jewelry, watches, and property totaling nearly $300K which will go toward that fine. If he fails to pay in full, then he could get another 4 1/2 years behind bars.
