(businesspress24) - Montreal - Following a year long investigation, police in Montreal have arrested a 29 year old man in connection an international money laundering operation. Omar Dhanani, 29, of Montreal, was the alleged ring leader of an online criminal organization which laundered millions of dollars over a 5 year period.

The arrest took place in the downtown core in a pre-dawn raid. Officers were seen leaving the scene with seized evidence, including 3 Apple laptops, multiple hard drives as well as physical ledgers. Police cruisers remain on the scene and the investigation is ongoing.

It is believed that the arrest of Omar Dhanani is related to the investigation of Liberty Reserve, a "digital currency" that was based out of Costa Rica. In late May, the website was shuttered following an international investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies.
Dhanani is scheduled to appear in court next week.
