If you are going to start peddling drugs in your local neighborhood, or even in a large metro region like, say Denver, Colorado, then you might want to take a tip from the recently busted Castro brothers, who figured out a way to hide large sums of money.
The alleged meth king-pins were laundering their ill-gotten gains by buying and selling classic comic books. According to reports as many as 100 boxes of comic books were encased in plastic during the drug bust.
Theoretically, the plan by the alleged drug dealers was a good one.Â While the DEA and other law enforcement officials might be tracking gambling, prostitution, and small arms rings, no one would expect the Spanish Inquisition the local comic shop.Â With demand for rare comics quite high, a quick cash exchange for the books would get someone a bunch of unmarked and clean bills pretty quickly.
We’re not condoning using drugs kids, but I do have to give it to these two for figuring out a different way to launder their gains.
