Along Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria’s life he managed to gather more than 50 billion dollars in cash from illegal narcotics trafficking business, becoming the world’s richest offender. He wasn’t a simple drug dealer, but the leader of an empire which was worth several tens of billions of dollars. The Colombian began his life outlaws as a child in the city of Medellin, where he joined a gang specialized in petty theft.
Escobar participated in the kidnapping 70s after a politician who obtained the huge amount (then) $ 100,000 and with them founded the empire that was to sell the most expensive drug in the world: cocaine. Escobar began to introduce the precious drug in the country using small airplanes. Put the cocaine pasty in aircraft’s wheels, in seats or in different places in the United States customs officers couldn’t find them.
Later came to own a fleet of planes, ships and trucks which imported “white death” in North America, the country with the largest number of drug users. The police said that at the peak traffic made by the Colombian, his network called Medellin Cartel, managed to bring in the United States more than 15 tons of cocaine a day!
Pablo Escobar had in his property several islands in the Bahamas, where built hotels, apartment buildings and airports, all of which were part of his empire, serving as warehouse where the drugs were then transported to America, Mexico, Spain and Venezuela. With a well-established network it owns 85% of the Colombian market for cocaine in the world, with a daily gain of 60 million dollars. Every week he spent $ 2,500 just for the elastics to group the money.

He bought everything he liked at any moment. Unfortunately, majority-owned cars were destroyed when Escobar was arrested in the eyes of people and held in a prison house done by him. The US authorities put pressure on corrupt Colombians and they have reduced the freedom, enough so the rivals to ruin the drug business. The same ended and many other of his cars at the Napoles, Colombia, near Medellin.
