seized drug money

The U.S. government called it “the largest single drug cash seizure the world has ever seen.”

Born in Shanghai, 44-year-old Zhenli Ye Gon he lived in Mexico and ran a pharmaceuticals company — a front, authorities allege, that supplied Mexican drug cartels with massive quantities of a chemical used to make the street drug methamphetamine. Police raided his luxurious Mexico City home in March, carting off what they said was $207 million, most of it in $100 bills that had been stashed behind false walls and in closets.

This is a man who owned a fleet of luxury cars and had mistresses in several countries, according to Mexican officials. In recent years, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said, he gambled away nearly $126 million in Las Vegas casinos.
