Colombian National Police seized $11.2 million dollars in cash on Friday. It’s the second time this week that authorities have seized such a large amount of money.
According to the police, “Comba” assumed control of what used to be the Norte del Valle cartel after the extradition of “Don Diego” to the United States and the death of Wilber “Jabon” Varela in Venezuela last year.
Marks on the bills suggest the money belongs to the Rastrojos capo, Torres added.
Los Rastrojos are mostly active in the southwest of Colombia, especially near the Ecuadorean border and the southern half of the Pacific coast.
