A Mexican drug lord’s house was busted and let us just say, everything you would assume about a drug lord’s house is true. This raid was a few years ago, but these pictures are straight out of a movie. Many of these pictures are pretty awesome, even though the arrest was not. I was shocked to see these pictures of what they found when this drug lord’s house got raided. I mean, I’ve always assumed these would be the things you would find in a drug lord’s house but seeing these images puts things into perspective. It’s amazing the amount of things he had and how he was able to keep the police away for so long is crazy too. Someone pick my jaw up off the floor please.
A gun with a gold Virgin Mary on the handle.
Tons of guns, from big to small.
More gold guns… and lots of money. A lot of what they found has been put in a museum.
The enormous house that was raided.
A hot tub in a cave.
More exotic animals than most zoos.
A total of eight lions were found.
And a white tiger.
The pool with a nice cabana at the end.
A lot of stolen art was found during the raid.
Tons and tons of guns.
An unbelievable amount of cash.
And even more cash and guns.
Cash was found everywhere.
I don’t even know where to start counting to see how much money there was.
They had money stuffed in every space possible.
That’s a lot of money!
Did we mention they found some cash?
I’m sure getting a chunk of this money from the drug lord himself would come with a pretty high price tag.
The government eventually burned down the entire house. It is said to be over $200 million.
The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the USA for 12 years!
Snopes actually confirms this story to be valid and said that $207 million was seized.
This drug raid is right out of a movie. And then of course someone like me will post pictures about it. I’m astonished at what they found when this drug lord’s house got raided. I’m a little upset that the government burnt down the house. From the looks of it, that place is amazing and deserves a story all its own.
