Take it to the Mattresses

It's that same old story. A loving couple from Novosibirsk work hard for their whole lives, have a millionaire son who dies young and leaves them his money, go a visit to the big city (Moscow) and get robbed.

The cruel robbers made off with $6 million and 7 million euros in cash from a rented flat in "an ordinary residential area of southeast Moscow." Now the bereaved couple are only left with the $200 million and 200 million Euros they left at the bank (probably couldn't carry it all in cash, and really anything over $14 million in cash is just not safe to take in suitcases on the Moscow metro). It'll be tough, but somehow they will make that cash stretch when they get back to Western Siberia.

All I really want to know is this: how many suitcases did it take to hold $6 million and 7 million euros in cash and how in the world did they fit it into an "ordinary" Moscow apartment?

This story should have been written by O.Henry, I'm sure!

Wow. That's how much I spend on lunch each day.

The story in your telling is not completely accurate. These 6 or 7 mil. dollars were "kept" in the apartment of the couples lawyer. He reported the theft. That same lawyer was the lawyer of the couple's son. The son was murdered under suspicious circumstances and lawyer was "helping" the grieving couple to deal with the money left. The lawyer now is the suspect in arranging the murder of the son and staging the theft.
