Last week a police dog in Amsterdam found 1.3 million euros hidden in a car the police pulled over in the Dutch capital. Three Albanian suspects were arrested, including the driver, the police announced on Friday. Last week Friday, August 12th, a Saab was pulled over on Borneolaan. A dog trained to find paper money signaled the car, but the money wasn't immediately obvious. After thoroughly searching the car, the police found 1.3 million euros in a hidden compartment under the car's spare wheel in the boot. The police arrested the 32-year-old Albanian man driving the car and searched a home on Albert Metzhof in Amsterdam. There they found 13 kilograms of cocaine, weapons and 40 thousand euros in cash. Two suspects were arrested at the house, a 20-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man caught trying to sneak out of the back door with the cocaine. All three suspects are of Albanian descent. They are still in custody on suspicion of hard drug trafficking and money laundering.
