$50K reward, national manhunt announced for alleged B.C. money launderer

Hot on the heels of the capture of one of B.C.’s most wanted fugitives, police and the Bolo Program have launched a reward campaign for another wanted man.

The B.C. RCMP announced the Canada-wide hunt for alleged 32-year-old Vietnamese gangster Cong Dinh of Burnaby on Tuesday, along with a $50,000 reward.

According to Chief Supt. Keith Finn, Officer In Charge of the RCMP’s federal policing program in B.C., police have been searching for Dinh since he was charged with five counts of money laundering in 2013.

“Dinh and the Vietnamese organized crime group he belonged to is alleged to have laundered millions of dollars from drugs trafficked onto Canadian streets,” said Finn.

Police got onto Dinh’s trail in the wake of a joint RCMP, U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) money laundering and drug trafficking investigation, Finn said.
