$1 million found in the wall of the brothel...some said it was $10 million.

$1 million cash in brothel raid

POLICE have seized drugs and $1 million in cash during a raid at a brothel in Sydney.
Police from Strike Force Constance, set up in 2008 to investigate drug supply from the brothel, searched the property on Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross, yesterday.

A quantity of powder, believed to be heroin, drug paraphernalia and an estimated $1 million in cash were seized, police said.

Power tools, computers, clothing and other items suspected of being the proceeds of crime were also seized.

A 47-year-old man was arrested at the scene and later charged with four offences, to appear at Parramatta Local Court today.

The brothel has been closed for 72 hours.

In a separate incident, police joined Immigration officers and Liverpool Council workers to target brothels in the area operating outside council approval and employing illegal immigrants.

Of the 11 brothels and five adult shops inspected, three premises were operating illegally and were directed by council officials to close.

Two illegal immigrants were found out of more than 50 people who were questioned.
