There is NOTHING on that page except 26 ads on the left, 4 ads in the center, and a few comments in the left column at the bottom. Except for the ads, the comments, a footer, and a header, the entire page is white and BLANK.

I'm seeing a page with a Bloomberg video report

Quote :
The following report from Italy highlights the growing trend in government confiscations of precious metals, investment assets, and critical resources.
After questioning the family and inspecting their vehicle police reportedly found one ton of gold hidden in the floor boards.
Quote :
Police officers got the surprise of their lives when they found a treasure trove of gold bars hidden in a car at a border crossing with Switzerland. They haul weighed a ton…

The car belonged to an Italian family that lived in Switzerland.
The video shows some uniformed people removing gold bars from a car. The reporting is a bit sloppy though. They claim a "ton" of gold was found worth "$6 Million". One ton would be worth ~$50 Million. Either they got the amount of gold wrong (ie. exagerrating), or they can't do simple math. Probably both.

Not sure that a sedan could carry a ton of gold without straining the suspension and transmission.
