Money Laundering

After the fire department came and found someone had pulled a false alarm, Louisville Metro Police responded to a call about a man acting very strange. They arrived to find Jose Veras of Radcliff, Kentucky, in an apartment building laundry room, stuffing money into a washing machine.
When officers arrived they allegedly found cash, "laying all over the area." Police also say that several residents were out in the hallways complaining about Veras was banging on their doors and running around.

Police eventually found Veras on the first floor in the laundry room, allegedly trying to stuff money into a washing machine. Officers say he did not live at the apartment, had no reason to be there and -- what's more -- was the one who pulled the fire alarm in the first place.

Police say they found over $1,000 scattered throughout the halls and in the washer.

Veras was arrested for trespassing. He apparently has a mistaken notion of what money laundering really entails. Link -via Arbroath

I remember in Lethal Weapon 4 they showed counterfeiters taking the funny money they had just created and shoving it into a dryer with a bunch of poker chips. This took their crisp bills and made them look more worn so people would not be as suspicious of them. Now, I bet the police in this case would have figured out if the money was fake so I am not exactly sure what this guy was up to.
