A MAN has been cleared of having any involvement in a £54,000 money-laundering scam.

David Odada was accused of possessing £54,021 in cash that he knew or suspected was made from criminal activity.

Odada, of Aylward Street, Portsea, Portsmouth, denied the charge of possessing criminal property. The 23-year-old was due to stand trial at Portsmouth Crown Court but the prosecution dropped the case before the trial.

Judge Sarah Munro QC formally entered a not guilty verdict on the records.
