Guatemala – Where have all the Q200 bills gone?


Guatemala – Where have all the Q200 bills gone?

Guatemla-San Marcos–Everyone in Guatemala complains that the Q200 Quetzal bills have misteriously dissapeared from circulation and the most common theory is that they are regularly hoarded by the big time drug dealers to pay for the tons of coaciane, regularly trans-shipped through this country.

However, a Police raid carried out yesterday on the 5th of May, 2017, at the home of a couple of humble school teachers (husband and wife) in San Pedro Sacatepequez in the Dept of San Marcos, near the Mexican border, revealed they had a hoard of almost Q4 million Quetzales in Q200 Quetzal bills, stashed in metal boxes, hidden in their house.


It turns out that Horacio Rolando Orozco Vásquez  and his wife  Marleny Fidelina Navarro Orozco, who respectively only earn Q10 thousand and Q5 thousand each per month, were also big fans of, and into Fixed Term Deposits, which they had at various local banks.

The couples Fixed Term Deposits totalled close to a further Q5 million Quetzales which they had in four (4) different Term Deposits, each with more than a million Quetzales.

The autorities also found US$1,089.00, 500 Rumanian Leus, 30 Indian Rupees, 15 Cuban Pesos and 10 Brazilian Reales.

This story will get even better when it finally gets to court.

Menwhile, for all those wondering where all the Q200 bills have gone, here’s a good tune tu yodel at your next hootenanny.
