The drug trade is a huge problem all around the world, but we don’t often see more than what movies like “Scarface” and “Blow” show us of the lives of the most illegal kind of entrepreneurs out there. These pictures are the real deal. Mexican authorities seized the home of a Mexican drug lord and what they found inside is actually more astonishing than the movies. Imagine having all this in your home:
It starts out with what looks like a custom-built home and pool hidden in some remote location in Mexico filled with exotic, stolen, and illegal art.
This drug lord had a gun museum in his house, one that could rival any other gun collection in the world. Instagram King Dan Bilzerian would be jealous.
Authorities found cash, mostly U.S $100 bills, stacked and hidden in cabinets all throughout the house.
Mexican authorities confiscated all the cash and counted it. We are willing to bet this is the most amount of money you’ve ever seen in one stack.
Reportedly, the amount of straight cash totaled up to be just over $22 billion dollars, mostly all U.S. dollars, but also Mexican and Colombian pesos, Euros, British pounds, and Chinese yuan. The total, were it legal, would land this guy just under Google’s Sergey Brin on Forbes Top Billionaires List.
