Boatload of cash


Busan customs officials inspect hundreds of thousands of confiscated U.S. dollars at their office in central Busan yesterday. The bills were smuggled via container ship by the head of a textile dyeing company and his two sons. Over $938,800 was discovered hidden in a box amidst the cargo on the ship as it entered the country Jan. 21. Since 2010, the 67-year-old head of the textile company surnamed Kim and his sons, who were both arrested, have smuggled over $4 million into the country without reporting it to customs. Each stack contains 100 hundred-dollar bills. [NEWSIS]
