Chapter 149: Hetian Trying to Strategize (Part one)
After Wu Gang opened the trunk and briefly searched it, he frowned. Seeing Xu Cheng coming over, he moved aside for him.
Seeing the badge on Xu Cheng’s uniform, the driver knew he was the one in charge here. He immediately handed a cigarette over and asked, “Hello Officer, is there a problem with this car? Why am I getting stopped?”
Xu Cheng waved off the cigarette as he said to Wu Gang, “SUVs like this have a lot of room. There’s another layer designed below the trunk, knock on it and see if it’s hollow.”
Wu Gang paused for a moment then immediately knocked on the floor of the trunk. Hearing that it wasn’t solid, he immediately said to his lackey, “Open it!”
The driver began to panic. “This car isn’t mine, I’m just a driver. This car’s a luxury configuration and costs over two million, Bro! The car won’t be the same if you open it and seal it after, not to mention if you break it, my boss would definitely fire me!”
Xu Cheng didn’t say anything, letting Wu Gang and the others continue on.
The others got the necessary tools and unscrewed the bottom of the trunk. Then, Wu Gang saw a wrapped square box that seemed to be stuffed with something hard. He directly knifed it open and found it to be filled with cash.
Wu Gang immediately got excited. “Boss, all hundred-yuan bills!”
The driver was dumbfounded. He wanted to say something but didn’t know what to say. Seeing his blank reaction, he was probably wondering what his boss was trying to do as well.
Xu Cheng said to Li Chao, “Go search up who this car belongs to. If he wants his car back, tell him to come to the police station, because we are seizing both the driver and the car. Also, count how much there is.”
Li Chao: “Yes, Sir!”
Driver: “I’m innocent, I’m just the driver. I need to call my boss!”
Xu Cheng gave Wu Gang a look, and Wu Gang directly took that driver’s phone away and said, “Sorry, you cannot make a call right now.”
Xu Cheng then dragged the driver to the side and asked, “Where did your boss tell you to go?”
Driver: “I don’t know…”
Xu Cheng: “You’ve committed a crime, do you know that?”
Xu Cheng: “Spill it, where are you heading off to? Who are you seeing?”
The driver got so nervous that he was about to cry. “I really don’t know… My boss told me to go to the neighboring city to pick up his relative, I really don’t know the rest.”
Xu Cheng saw that he wasn’t acting and was indeed confused, so he patted him on the shoulder and said, “You can’t make any call for now, and I will need you to come with us. You said you are innocent, and we will do our investigation so please cooperate. Otherwise, if you have so much cash seized from your car, you might have to go to jail if you can’t prove the legitimate source of this cash.”
The driver nodded honestly. “I will cooperate.”
After taking him away, Wu Gang came over to report. He took a deep breath and said, “Boss, there is 50 million yuan in cash, I don’t know how much black money was really stored by this underground money house.”
Xu Cheng faintly said, “If they don’t have a lot, then they wouldn’t be called a money house. During the past years, companies in the country had been constantly hitting record revenues, and many of them were involved with tax evasion. Most of them would go to the underground money house, and for a business-central city like Shangcheng, the black money stored in the underground money house will definitely be a shocking amount.”
