After his tenant stopped paying rent a few months ago, a Jieyang landlord decided to swing by and check out his house. The premises were empty, the tenant nowhere to be found, and boxes stuffed with millions of yuan in cash were found in the bathroom. Not exactly a routine visit.
The landlord called the police when he needed to enter the home to make sure that, for example, the tenant hadn’t died inside. As ECNS reports, it got weird:
Lancheng district police eventually helped the landlord pry open the door where inside they found a sedan covered in thick dust and boxes stuffed with cash totaling millions of yuan in a second-floor toilet.
Nearby hardware market store owners told police the tenant had hardly been seen and always covered the windows with newspaper.
I’m no detective, but this sounds a bit shady. Out of the many, many potential explanations (including, say, an organ ring, brothel, meth lab, sex dungeon, or any number of underground activities going on in China at the moment) we can be sure the tenant was involved in something that forced him to leave in a damn hurry.
