€2.4 million cash discovered in uninhabited Amsterdam house

Police recently discovered €2.4 million stashed away in an uninhabited house in Amsterdam.

The cash was found alongside a cash counter, reports AD. The municipality says a police report shows that large sums of money were laundered in the house.

The stash, which conjures up major Breaking Bad vibes, has forced Mayor Femke Halsema to close the entire building on Eef Kamerbeekstraat for three months.

“Such a large amount of cash in the home has an increased risk of criminal activities, reciprocal theft, disturbances of public order, and deterioration of the living environment,” says the municipality.

Sam isn’t great at being Dutch. Originally hailing from Australia, she came to study in the Netherlands without knowing where the country was on a map. She once accidentally ordered the entire ice-cream menu at Smullers. She still can’t jump on the back of a moving bike. But, she remains fascinated by the tiny land of tall people.
