Jose Mariena Cartolos, 65, recently received a $3,000 grant from the Colombian government to start a palm oil plantation on a lot of land that has been in his family for more than 200 years.
While digging a trench for irrigation purposes on his land, Cartolos struck something peculiar. After taking a further look, he discovered several large, blue containers. What he found inside was the unthinkable. The containers were filled to the brim in cold hard cash, totaling $600,000,000!
That is not a misprint, the money is said to be a part of Pablo Escobar's $30 billion fortune that is said to be buried through out the country.
Of course, Cartolos will not be able to keep the money. The money is expected to be used by the Colombian government to help with social and economic programs (in true Escobar fashion duh). Inside Hollywood speculates that this discovery will cause a new "Gold Rush," in tourism drawing treasure hunters to the Colombian countryside in search of hidden treasure.
