UK police have seized up to $ 250 million (£ 180 million) in digital currency. According to Reuters, the cryptocurrency was confiscated as part of a money laundering investigation. This is a record amount for the kingdom, the journalists stressed. Joe Ryan, representing the British Criminal Police, did not reveal what kind of cryptocurrency in question. However, he added that the operation was carried out in strict accordance with the previously approved schedule. The investigation into this case will continue over the next several months. At the moment, law enforcement officers do not have data on the full composition of the criminal group that uses digital currency. Note that at the end of June, during the investigation of the same case, law enforcement officers seized $ 158 million (£ 114 million) in cryptocurrency. The authorities refuse to disclose any details of the investigation.
