The total amount discoevered is said to be between $10 million and $20 million in cash.

Reports from CNN say, according to arrest documents from the Miami-Dade Police Department, the huge discovery was made as the police searched a business and a home belonging to Luis Hernandez-Gonzalez, 44, and his sister, Salma Gonzalez, 32.

As the documents show, both suspects were arrested Wednesday in connection with a drug trafficking case.

Luis’ brother’s gardening equipment business was searched on Tuesday yielding a total of $180,000 in cash and two types of marijuana labeled “Super Skunk” and “Chernobyl,” police said.

Reports say police authorities went to his home in Miami Lakes with a secondary search warrant and found more evidence. There was a lot of money hidden in bulk at different locations. Police also found four types of anabolic steroids and a loaded TEC-9 pistol with an extended magazine.
There was a hidden room, only accessible through the attic, where authorities said they found 24 five-gallon buckets with millions of dollars packed in them. They were hidden behind a dry wall.
Hernandez-Gonzalez is facing drug trafficking and money laundering charges.
His sister, who was arrested at the business, is facing marijuana possession and trafficking charges.
According to the arrest documents, as CNN reported, the arrests are the culmination of an investigation that involved the Drug Enforcement Agency in Tennessee and Florida. Investigators say they used confidential sources, and planned drug buys and surveillance to make the arrests.
“There’s a presumption of innocence and at this point, they’re connecting the dots that we don’t think connect,” Frank Gaviria, an attorney for the suspects, told CNN.
Police Department says this is the largest seizure ever in the history of drug trafficking and money laundering.
