SEOUL, South Korea >>South Korean police say they’ve arrested a farmer for allegedly hiding about $10 million in cash in a garlic field. Police say his relatives made the money by running an illegal Internet gambling site.
Police said Tuesday they’ve confiscated the money the farmer buried in his field in Gimje, about 160 miles south of Seoul.
Police say the farmer, surnamed Lee, was arrested Monday.
They say Lee’s two brothers-in-law — one in prison and the other on the run — had asked him to hide the money.
Police gave no further details, including what charges Lee’s borthers-in-law face and whether the discovered money would add to their charges.
