Man In Australian $1M Suitcase Mystery Charged

Posted: Updated:

SYDNEY -- A man questioned by Australian police about an abandoned suitcase stuffed with nearly 1 million Australian dollars ($970,000) has been charged with assault and dealing in the proceeds of the crime.

New South Wales police announced the charges Friday, but they haven't said where they think the money came from.

Workers at a Sydney eatery say the suitcase was left there Tuesday by a nervous-looking man, and they were initially worried it might contain a bomb.

In a release, police said they found the 49-year-old suspect in a dazed state later Tuesday. When he was taken to the station, police allege he assaulted three officers, causing them minor injuries. The man was then treated at a local hospital.

The man was denied bail and is due in court Friday.
