Oise. Police discover 14,000 euros hidden … in the cat’s litter

He relieved himself on more than 14,000 euros. While carrying out a search last Wednesday at the home of a woman in her fifties in Nogent-sur-Oise, in the Oise, police officers from Creil were surprised to discover that 14,500 euros were hidden at his home, in a place that is incongruous to say the least: his cat’s litter box, placed in the living room.

The sum, kept “in large denominations”, was accompanied by 370 grams of cannabis, specifies The Parisian, who reports this astonishing case. 2,500 euros were also found elsewhere in the apartment, the newspaper adds.

The sniffer dog put them on the trail

Police officers, who were then conducting an anti-drug operation in Creil, went to the woman’s house after their sniffer dog stopped in front of her car. They then decided to go back on the track, by searching the home of its owner.

The 50-year-old, whose criminal record was clean, was sentenced to nine months in prison suspended for acts of acquisition, possession, transport, and offer or illicit transfer of narcotics. The money was confiscated.
