Why would you stash money this way even if you're drug-dealers?

Haha, that's ****ing awesome. What're all the bills (indiviually, colour-wise)?

NM, proabbly a pretty dumb question. I assume (from largest to smallest quantity), $20, $50, $100?

It was hidden in a secret closet. Someone snitched and the Feds went in.

for an "under the table" deal once for my boss, I had to help him count $200,000 in $100 and $50 bills.

I tell you, it took quite a while... nearly two hours to count through and make sure that was the proper amount.

Why didn't you just use a money counter?

Read the link. It wasn't just all stashed in a single room piled up like that.

The dollars were found hidden in walls, suitcases and cupboards in a mansion in an upmarket district of Mexico City, together with smaller amounts of euros and Mexican pesos.
