A brother and sister have been arrested after police seized $24million in cash and drugs from a Miami home. Luis Hernandez-Gonzalez, 44, and Salma Hernandez, 32, were both taken into custody after police found the huge haul of cash in their Florida property.
The money, that was believed to have been made peddling marijuana, was divided into $100 bills and stashed in orange heat-sealed buckets with Home Depot labels.
The hidden room – where the drugs, guns and cash were stashed – was guarded by a hallway statuette of St. Lazarus, a Catholic saint popular in Cuba. Police say it is their biggest drug bust in history.
They also found marijuana, seeds and $180,000 in cash a safe.
