Gulf News - - Europe/ United Kingdom -

Po­lice

in the south­ern Ital­ian city of Bari said yes­ter­day they had un­earthed a cash stash of a sus­pected lo­cal drug king­pin who hid away around €1 mil­lion ($1.2 mil­lion; Dh4.38 mil­lion) at his home.

A search in the man’s ab­sence turned up €936,000 in small bills in­side sealed plas­tic bags hid­den be­hind a false wall un­der a win­dow, lo­cal po­lice said. The po­lice have not found a le­gal ori­gin for the money, which is sus­pected to be from drug traf­fick­ing. Dur­ing a search in May, po­lice had al­ready found about €60,000 in the sus­pect’s home, again con­cealed be­hind a false wall.
