If the police say they recovered RD$4 million, I wouldn't be surprised if the real amount was actually considerably more!

Do you remember when they raided that villa in Sosua where the guy had military grade weapons and was running a secret cult, quite a few years ago. And the initial reports said he had something like US$ 5 million in cash (I can't remember the exact amount) and subsequently the number magically changed to be reported in Dominican Pesos and was reported as something like RD$ 10 million. A lot of policemen out there not too good at counting it would appear.
