A locked safe has been located by a crew demolishing the Miami Beach mansion once owned by Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. The safe has not been opened and the contents remains unknown.

Crews began deconstructing the posh, but dilapidated waterfront property, now owned by Chicken Kitchen founder Christian de Berdouare. On Monday, excavators found the metal safe as they demolished the dwelling.

Excavator operator Miguel Mato tells El Nuevo Herald that the 2-foot-by-2-foot safe weighs up to 700 pounds. Mato says he noticed it when the floor sank beneath some rubble.

De Berdouare and his wife say the safe will remain locked in a bank vault until they finish filming a documentary about Escobar’s link to the property. h/t saintpetersblog
