Couple leave €80,000 in a café

A couple from Amsterdam and Weesp who left a bag containing €80,000 at a roadside restaurant in Amersfoort last week were arrested and held for two days on suspicion of money laundering.

Security staff alerted the police after the couple came back to claim the bag but could not explain why they were carrying so much money.
