On May 25, RCMP arrested Dan Bui Shun Jin in Richmond, who had been living at the River Rock Casino. At the time of his arrest, Jin had over $75,000 in cash on him.

According to the RCMP, Jin is a “high roller” and currently the subject of investigations into money laundering in Australia, United States, Macau, and Singapore. He is suspected of laundering $855 million dollars through Australian casinos.

The US has also issued a warrant for Jin’s arrest for fraud $1.4 million from the state of Nevada.

RCMP say that Jin’s latest money movement scheme was detected through the Vancouver Airport. The operation allegedly involved a woman who was instructed to pick up $25,000 cash at a parking lot in Las Vegas and bring it to River Rock Casino. The woman was referred for examination by CBSA border services officers.

The RCMP ordered Jin to be deported on Tuesday.
