Whoever said that crime doesn’t pay, doesn’t know how this really works. Because if you’re good, and you’re careful, crime can pay. At least for a while.

These criminals were getting paid serious money… until they got caught, that is. These are the biggest drug busts to ever happen in the US, counted down from the smallest amounts (which is still an absurd about of both money and drugs) to the largest busts. And you won’t believe how big some of these numbers get.

My high school teachers never told me I could make this kind of money with a life of crime.
