Criminal's dream car sold online by Leicestershire police
A criminal’s dream Audi R8 has been sold by Leicestershire police for £70,000.
The two-year-old car was seized by police as part of a money laundering investigation. The owner, who lived in Leicestershire, had paid £95,000 for it.
He was unable to explain how £130,000 had passed through his bank accounts, and admitted an offence under the Proceeds of Crime Act. That led a court to grant a Confiscation Order in June this year, paving the way for it to be sold.
The £70,000 will be retained as public funds.
