Jose Mariena Cartolos, a 65-year-old farmer received money from the Colombian government to help him out for starting a palm oil plantation on land.
Little did he know, there’s a stash of wealth buried underneath the ground. While he is digging the irrigation trench for the plantation, he found blue containers with lots and lots of money inside. Those containers belonged to the notorious “King of Cocaine” Pablo Escobar.
Pablo Escobar is well known for being the wealthiest criminal in history with a known net worth of US $30 billion by the early 1990’s. Possessing a lot of money, Pablo Escobar buried around 100 of these containers containing lots of money.
The farmer found a whopping $600,000,000 million dollars.
Though Jose Mariena Cartolos found the money, many people speculate that he is not allowed to keep the money. Rather, the money he found will be used to fund social and economic programs that will help those in poverty.
Anyone that will find this whopping amount of money will tremble, especially knowing it belongs to the notorious “King of Cocaine” Pablo Escobar.
