A MAN was allegedly found with nearly $40,000 cash in $50 notes in his backpack after being stopped by police.

Scarborough Police were attending an unrelated matter in Doubleview on November 8 about 1pm when they saw a motorcyclist they believed was acting suspiciously.

They tried to stop the man but he allegedly drove away before eventually stopping and was subsequently searched.

Police allege they found $39,800 in four bundles of $50 notes in the man’s backpack.

A 26-year-old Duncraig man was charged with possession of stolen or unlawfully obtained property and was bailed to appeal in court on December 9.
