Honduran authorities on Tuesday arrested the head of the national police, accusing him and his wife of money laundering.
Authorities arrested Leonel Luciano Sauceda and his wife, Patricia Sbeltlana Estrada on money laundering charges. They said in a statement that the couple was arrested at a home in Tegucigalpa, the capital, and that authorities seized two cars and financial documents.
Sauceda began his career with the national police in 1992 and was appointed head of police just two weeks ago.
According to officials, there was no accounting for 13 bank accounts and 13.8 million lempiras, or roughly $560,000, that Sauceda had in his name between 2006 and 2017.
