The cash consisted of various currencies divided into COP242,750,000; $135,200; and €17,500, which added up to a total of $398,558.

Neither the Colombian government nor media stated where the money was to be redistributed.

Cano was killed during the Colombian Army campaign known as Operation Odysseus in the municipality of Suarez, Cauca. Along with his money, computers and USB drives were seized as well has his trademark thick glasses.
