A new report claims that Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey had four gold bars hidden at his house that had previously been stolen from the businessman who is suspected of bribing the legislator.
According to NBC, the serial numbers on some of the gold bars that the FBI discovered during a raid in June 2022 on Menendez’s house in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, match the ones that Fred Daibes reported to police during an armed robbery in 2013.
During the 2013 theft, thieves stole 22 gold bars and $500,000 in cash from Daibes’ Edgewater, New Jersey, home, according to the outlet.
Authorities arrested four suspects and confiscated the stolen gold.
Police have established a clear connection between Daibes, a real estate developer in New Jersey and fundraiser for Menendez, and at least some of the gold discovered in Menendez’s residence based on the matching serial numbers.
