Over £5m-worth of dollars were found stuffed in a wooden box in London yesterday.
The money was found by a Channel 5 crew making a documentary about bailiffs in the Docklands.
A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of money laundering.
A Metropolitan police spokesman said: “Officers in Newham have recovered $8.5m at a residential flat.
“Police were called at approximately 10:25hrs on Wednesday, 11 June to an address in Wards Wharf Apartments, E16 after a large quantity of cash was found by bailiffs who were executing a warrant there.”
Ever wondered how they get diggers out of those mansion basement excavations? The truth will blow your mind
