Latest from Florida - $24 million found in the walls

So cops raided a home in a very upscale neighborhood in Dade County only to discover 24million dollars in buckets in the walls.

<snip>
A raid of the home of a suspected Miami-Dade drug trafficker turned up a whopping $24 million in cash, all sealed in buckets.

Tuesday's bust also turned up several packages of steroids and a high-powered automatic weapon.

Based on information from the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Miami-Dade Police Narcotics Bureau raided the Miami Lakes home of Luis Hernandez-Gonzalez and Salma Hernandez.

During the raid, authorities found the buckets concealed within the walls of the home. The money was grouped in bundles of $100 bills.

Hernandez-Gonzalez, 44, is the owner of Blossom Experience, a Miami store that specializes in equipment to facilitate indoor gardening.
Hernandez-Gonzalez was being investigated as part of a group trafficking marijuana out of Tennessee. The investigation includes wiretaps of Hernandez-Gonzalez sharing tips with an unnamed person on how to properly care for marijuana plants.

2. "indoor gardening," in other words facilitating crimes!

 

Cops could just look at receipts for grow lights and find more criminals than they could handle.

9. It's the largest cash seizure in Miami-Dade Police Department history.

With all the history in this town, that's quite an achievement.

14. Miami Lakes?!

I was in the area last week to help work on a house. No joke, three cop cars drove in and went in next door. One of them came out to ask me what I was doing there, which I thought was pretty standard operation since there were painters working on the same house. But, I wouldn't have referred to the place as upscale.
