Eu­ros wouldn’t go with the flow

Winnipeg Sun - - NEWS -

GENEVA — Talk about flush with cash.

A Geneva of­fi­cial has con­firmed a news­pa­per re­port that said wads of cut-up 500-euro notes (about $600 each) mys­te­ri­ously turned up jammed into the toi­lets of three neigh­bour­hood restau­rants and a bank in sep­a­rate episodes in re­cent months.

Pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice spokesman Henri Della Casa con­firmed Fri­day’s re­port in the Tri­bune de Gen­eve, say­ing the shred­ded notes were once worth tens of thou­sands of eu­ros in to­tal.

Pre­lim­i­nary clues from an in­ves­ti­ga­tion sug­gested the bounty once be­longed to un­named “Span­ish women who had placed the loot in a Geneva vault sev­eral years ago,” the re­port said.

At one pizze­ria, po­lice were in­formed af­ter the clogged toi­let had over­flowed.

Della Casa said the ori­gins of the cash were un­known.
