A man who delivered a million pounds in cash to a Bradford jewellery business at the centre of a massive money-laundering scheme has been spared an immediate prison sentence.
John Chambers was one of a succession of men caught on CCTV couriering holdalls of banknotes to Fowler Oldfield in Hall Lane, Bowling.
Up to £2 million of criminal money was being processed there every day, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Chambers, 52, of Papillon Drive, Liverpool, pleaded guilty at Bradford and Keighley Magistrates Court in March to knowingly transferring criminal property on August 18 and 19, 2016.
Yesterday, almost four years after the police raided the building, Chambers was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment suspended for two years.
