Spanish police have found millions of euros in cash in a raid on Ibiza clubs Ushuaïa and Pacha.

Police and tax officials entered the venues in the early hours of Thursday morning (September 15) and uncovered large sums of money, which, according to Diario De Ibiza, amounted to several million Euros in total.

“Now we just have to verify if the amounts correspond to those declared in the companies’ accounting records,” said a high-ranking tax agent.

The raids of Ushuaïa and Pacha follow that of Amnesia and Space in July, with police reportedly finding €2 million in cash hidden in compartments throughout Amnesia.

Ibiza’s nightclubs have come under heavy scrutiny by the Spanish authorities in recent months after police launched Operation Chopin in response “alleged crimes against the Treasury”. The homes of suspects, safety deposit boxes and bank accounts have also been searched as part of the investigation.
