article imageChinese woman nabbed at airport smuggling money in nappies

By Anne Sewell     Oct 19, 2013 in Odd News
Milan - A 30-year-old Chinese woman was caught at Milan's Malpensa airport, trying to smuggle €80,000 in cash, concealed in a pile of nappies. The woman was heading to Shanghai, China.
Apparently when going through customs, she had "nothing to declare," but airport staff decided to check anyway, and found €80,000 stashed in packs of nappies (diapers).
On further investigation by police, it was found that the woman, a resident in nearby Varese, had not declared any income for the past five years.
Reportedly since the start of 2013, around 1,000 people have been caught, failing to declare currency when passing through the airport. Authorities have apparently intercepted €16 million so far this year.
