Cash stash found at alleged drug kingpin’s home
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.
