$ 1m cash walks off

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

MONEY talks, and a bag con­tain­ing $ NZ1 mil­lion ($ A900,600) just said good­bye. A sack hold­ing the cash was lost at Hong Kong air­port by air­line staff last Fri­day af­ter a flight from Auck­land. The bag, along with two oth­ers stuffed with cash, fell off a bag­gage trailer as it turned a cor­ner. When the driver re­alised 10 min­utes later he had lost part of the cargo, he re­turned to find only two cash bags on the tar­mac. Thir­teen bags, con­tain­ing $ NZ10 mil­lion in to­tal, were be­ing trans­ported to a Bank of China branch when the $ 1m went miss­ing.
