We’ve all heard the terrifying and depressing news stories that center around the illegal drugs trafficking world. The world’s two biggest hitters, Colombia and Mexico are countries ravaged by drug crime. Tens of thousands of deaths every year occur around this shady underworld, with all-powerful cartels killing almost indiscriminately in their quests to make more and more money and ruin more and more lives. So while this story may be a little sad to read as it shows you how successful these criminals can be, it’s also very good news. The drug kingpin whose house we’ve incredible pictures of is now behind bars. Let’s look around his extraordinarily garish, almost unbelievable house…
The place is, unsurprisingly, full of guns. The same guns that open fire on rival cartels, citizens and police.
The owner of this place, Colombian kingpin Teodoro ‘The Dove’ Fino, loved guns so much, he displayed them as if he was running some kind of macabre museum.
Situated on the outskirts of the Mexican capital, Mexico City – the house is actually quite tasteful from the outside.
Not so much on the inside. After all, it’s not the height of class and sophistication to have an underground hot tub, is it?
Here’s where things get serious weird. And arguably, cruel. Fino kept his own little private zoo. Animals included panthers…
… and even the endangered albino tiger.
It’s said that the police even found a HIPPO in the pool!
Police found lots of illegal artwork too.
Along with all the guns, of course.
Hundreds of millions of dollars was seized from the property. And that’s a lot of cash.
Money was found everywhere about the house.
Every little place it could be stashed, it was.
Police were taken aback by just how much was kept there.
Thankfully, all of it has now been seized.
Along with the crazy collection of gold guns!
Great work from the Mexican authorities. We wish them all the best in their work, busting these drug-peddling creeps!
