Cool A Suspected Drug Dealer's Garage - "And I thought I've seen it all!"

Last year in September Alexander Surin, a thief in law, was detained on suspicion of drug traffic. His property was exempted in all Europe. It turned out that he had a huge collection of supercars such as Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce Phantom and many others. All his collection is priced at approximately 6 million US dollars. Interestingly enough that the cars were located in various parts of Europe and in many of them some cash was hidden - all in all - in amount of 1,1 million USD. Not bad!
Total list of his supercars:
Bugatti Veyron (x2): $1 680 000 ($3 360 000)
Enzo Ferrari (x2): $613 000 ($1 226 000)
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé: $491 000
Rolls-Royce Phantom: $421 500
Ferrari 599 GTB: $318 000
Ferrari California: $220 000
Porsche 911 GT3: $125 000

Wow I would like to meet this chap. He should have watched Dhoom and learnt that if thieves buy fancy cars, they get caught.
I must say, its a very impressive collection. But a few photos look unreal especially the first one. And his Bugatti looks dirty.

What the hell!!! This guy has seriously got guts but no brains. How on earth did he manage to buy 2 Enzos! I thought that car was available only to select customers and even the richest person in the world wouldn't buy two of these! And then, 2 Veyrons, 2 Phantoms, 2 GTBs

I should have listened to my friends when they said I am in the wrong profession.

Ten years and still stuck with a Safari and look at this guy.

Finally a thief with some class and taste for cars . The Ferrari though looks like a shot from the showroom, unlikely that it might have been from his stable.

They are not stolen cars. They are bought by him from the money he got by dealing with drugs.

But as rjstyles69 pointed out this guy surely has a taste for cars.

I don't have any info to support this, but quite possible that the pics of the fezza's were shot when they were about to be delivered or when on a routine service at some fezza dealers.

And NO, he didn't thieve all those cars, bought em with the $$$ he got from his shady business.

We can't really WOW !! because we are living in a world where a chap who began as an Indian police constable's son is today a gangster worth an estimated 7000cr(that is just "on record assets") !!!

No offence but since he is reported to be a drug dealer, shouldn't he be called one ? Thief is too less an offence to be called him with.
