According to a new report from the Australian border police, the largest seize of cryptocurrency assets in the world occurred yesterday with more than $1.5 million’s worth of digital assets being taken away by the police from a couple trying to cross the Australian border.
According to the same report, the couple were arrested due to drug trafficking into the country. The police took more than 50g of MDMA and ecstasy from the couple’s house in Perth. One policeman noted that during the raid, several officers found an electronic device which contained the cryptocurrencies in question.
Needless to say, the event was followed up by a senior officer’s comment saying that the Australian police department needs to be better prepared for new cybercrimes that are now plaguing the world around Australia, as well as Australia itself.
