Italian border police found gold bars after closely investigating a vehicle which was trying to reach Switzerland.

Inside the car there was a family of five who said they were on their Easter vacation. The police felt something was wrong based on the nervous behavior of the passengers and conducted an in-depth investigation of the car.

They literally struck gold as no less than 6M USD in gold bars were found hidden in a storage compartment. According to the authorities, the 53-year-old driver is a representative of a Swiss firm and wasn't able to explain what the police found. The car and gold were confiscated, while the driver is being accused of money laundering.
