FBI: Accused spies buried cash in field
Federal investigators say that a Sullivan County field was used as a drop-off spot for suspected spies accused of providing information to Russian operatives.
According to federal documents, Christopher Metsos allegedly accepted money from a Russian official in New York City back in 2004. Metsos then allegedly drove that money up to Wurtsboro where he buried the cash in a field.
Investigators say that surveillance video shows that Patricia Mills and a Yonkers-born man, Michael Zottoli, picked up a portion of that buried cash two years later.
The three were arrested along with eight others as part of an investigation in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Virginia.
