Swiss authorities want to know why someone is flushing tens of thousands of euros down the toilet.
It's happened at banks and restaurants in Geneva and it's led to clogged pipes. Swiss authorities say toilets near a bank vault in the city were stuffed with 500-euro bills. The bills had been chopped up. Bloomberg reports more bills were discovered clogging nearby restaurant toilets.
The BBC reports it's not a crime to destroy local banknotes. However the European Union prohibits the destruction of large amounts of its currency. Curiosity has prompted local authorities to launch a criminal investigation.
