Launderette 2

Following from previous item, because the story is sort of local.

The bank in Farmington was a ‘family office’ for local prosperous farmers. It was bought in the 1990s by a Hong Kong millionaire who might have been using it for money laundering; we don’t know that part of the story. We do know that a French billionaire bought it in 2020 for bitcoin money laundering, and then Sammy’s gang bought a part interest for the same purpose. (The part interest wasn’t clear in previous media stories.)

Latest development: The French billionaire claims to be giving up the bitcoin part and returning to real banking. I doubt it, but at least he’s smart enough to discard a washer with a noisy unbalanced spin cycle.
