Colombia

Colombian authorities Jan. 17 said they had unearthed more than USD 54 million in cash and gold ingots in four houses in what they called the country’s largest haul of illicit drug money. Police discovered the first stash last week after receiving a tip. Officials used hydraulic drills to dig out USD 19 million packed into a pit covered with concrete in a house belonging to the Norte de Valle drug gang in Cali. (Reuters)
