Netherlands: Police find 3000 kilos of cocaine and eleven million euros

The Dutch police discovered almost 3,000 kilograms of cocaine and more than eleven million euros in cash on a farm. The farm in the village of De Kwakel south of Amsterdam apparently was a camp of a South American drug gang, as the Amsterdam police announced.

Two people were arrested and are now in custody, it said. The cash of around 11.3 million euros was in several travel bags. According to the police, the drugs had a sales value of around 195 million euros. This was “one of the largest drug finds by the Amsterdam police,” said a spokesman.

Expensive wines and a vintage car

The investigators also found numerous luxury goods in the house: expensive wines, a valuable vintage car and a book about boxing legends Muhammad Ali worth 12,500 euros. According to the information, weapons, silencers, ammunition and a money counting machine were also seized.

According to the investigators, there were movie posters for the Hollywood classic “The Godfather” on the walls. The police spokesman added: “Everything we know from films and series about the South American drug world was there.”
