We really should've started saving from young.

One week ago, the whole world was stunned when a total of 284 luxury bags and 72 luggages containing cash were wheeled out of a posh apartment reportedly linked to former Prime Minister Najib Razak located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Now, one week later, the police have finally completed the painstaking task of counting how much money was in the luggages.

Yup, they took almost a week just to count the money!

According to a report by The Star Online, the officers from Bukit Aman's Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) said the cash, which was in various currencies, totaled up to more than RM120mil!

Indeed.
A source told the news portal that the officers started counting the cash on Monday (21 May) and only finished on Wednesday.

The reason it took so long, according to the source, was because the officers had to scribble down the serial number of each note.

The officers also reportedly got a helping hand from Bank Negara officials.

Entire live savings?
Here's the shocker: only 30 luggages out of the 72 seized by the authorities contained cash.

The remaining luggages reportedly contained luxury items such as watches and jewellery.

However, according to the source, the officers couldn't ascertain the value of the luxury items and handbags, reportedly due to the sheer volume. 

Operation Take All The Things!
Last Thursday, the police raided six premises reportedly linked to Najib Razak as part of an ongoing investigation into 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).

The luxury bags and cash were reportedly seized from an apartment in Pavilion Residences belonging to a Tan Sri with ties to the 64-year-old former PM.

Since that our national debt is more than RM1 trillion, could we use the cash to help pay some of it off?
