10,000 coins discovered near doomsday-style bunker

10,000 Coins Discovered Near Doomsday-Style Bunker

The FBI says a Romanian couple set to be deported from Washington state left behind a doomsday-style bunker and millions of dollars in gold and silver coins.

NBC reports Radu and Diana Nemes were both wanted in Romania for alleged tax evasion. According to court documents, Radu, along with others in Romania, sold about one million tons of fuel and lied about what type it was in order to save nearly $70 million in taxes. Diana is accused of putting all that extra money into the bank.

Fox News says the two were arrested on their more than 50-acre property back in March. When investigators searched it, they found a hidden bunker, several illegally owned guns and gold and silver coins buried underground.

According to the Daily Mail, investigators found more than 10,000 gold and silver coins. But the outlet adds more than $2.7 million is still unaccounted for.

KIRO reports the hidden bunker had beds, a kitchen, clothes and a lot of food. After they were arrested, Diana reportedly tried fighting her arrest because she's pregnant and has two other kids.

But the judge ended up ruling against her. The Nemes family was in the Seattle area on visitor's visas, which have recently expired. Court documents say they moved to the U.S. in 2012.

According to KOMO, the couple was in the process of building a 6,000 square-foot log cabin on their property when they were arrested.

So far, it's not clear exactly when they could be deported back to Romania.

Sure deport her and her kids but not the 12.7 million other illegals who don't have money and are collecting welfare.

Where in the story did you read that? The story says romania claims they didn't pay taxes. i.e. they haven't even been convicted of anything.
I would be interested to know how romania citizens carry around gold and silver coins. That must rip your pockets to shreds from the weight alone.

Underground bunkers don't tend to work so well unless you've got an escape tunnel running deep into the woods.

As soon as I sell my home, I've got the perfect doomsday design to build that's impenetrable from outsiders & the most energy efficient & cost effective home you could live in.

These good folks should have consulted me,, *wink*..

4 corner chain guns with overlapping fire will put 12K rounds a minute on any would be revenuers trespassing.
But you can increase the efficiency even more by putting the heat pump in an underground cave. unless that is what you already planed. The year round 60 temp does wonders for them.

I have access to maps, and it says east germany exists. I thought romania went away to make bosnia / serbia myself.

The key statement here is, "The Nemes family was in the Seattle area on visitor's visas, which have recently expired. ' JUST HOW MANY ARE HERE 'illegally" ON EXPIRED VISAS. IT IS NOT ONLY PEOPLE FROM MEXICO THAT NEED TO BE DEPORTED

Oh, come on, let her stay, have the kid here, so the child can be considered a citizen, and put them all on welfare in a nice apartment. What the heck, like we do so many other illegals.
