After the man became ‘nervous and elusive’ when questioned, officers searched his car and found about $4.1 million in cash.
The money was wrapped in vacuum-sealed bags inside two zip-tied suitcases.
Police footage of the incident has been released by the Queensland Police Department.
The footage shows the man acting suspiciously upon police approach as well as the officers’ discovery of the cash and the man’s subsequent arrest.
Police alleged the man had entered Queensland from NSW only two days prior to his arrest and additionally charged the man for failure to comply with Covid restrictions.
The man was remanded in custody on Monday and will next appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on December 6.
