A beggar menacing people for cash was arrested by police, shockingly the found more than half-a-million pounds in cash stuffed in his pockets.
According to The Sun UK, the man was threatening people who would not hand him money outside the Resecentrum bus and train station in Uppsala, 50 miles north of Swedish capital Stockholm.
When apprehended by officers, bank notes began tumbling from his jacket pockets as they discovered he was carrying approximately six million krona - around £535,000/$700,000 (N252 million).
Police chief Jale Poljarevius said: "I have never heard of so much money in a situation like this. There were just more and more bundles.
"Anyone who walks around with six million in cash will be a suspect of crime."
The largest note in Sweden is 1,000 krona, meaning he had at least 6,000 notes. It took officers more than a day to count it all.
A spokesperson for Uppsala Police said the 55-year-old Swedish man was trying to get pennies for enough money to get a train ticket to his home in the west of the country.
She added: "He was arrested on suspicion of money laundering. The prosecutor is carrying out an investigation to see whether he will be freed or appear in court in a few days.
"The people who called us said he was very angry when demanding money.
"We don't know whether he got this money through begging, if he won it in a lottery or it is the proceeds of crime.”
Prosecutor Anne Sjoblom added: "I cannot say exactly how much money he had, but it was obviously millions."Money laundering carries a maximum of two years in prison in Sweden.
