Tea leaf hides money in Xbox

A man grown (sort of) rich chipping consoles and flogging PSP memory cards has been collared by trading standards, who found £12,000 in cash stuffed in an Xbox and three PS2s.

"I've heard it all now," said Michael Rawlinson, managing director of ELSPA. "It never ceases to amaze ELSPA and its investigators the lengths criminals go to make money - and always to the detriment of honest, hard working businesses. I congratulate Tower Hamlets Trading Standards on bringing to an end this illegal business operation."

That's one example of pesky pirate scum that won't be stuffing his Xbox full of money again. Great job, Tower Hamlets Trading Standards.
