A Florida mansion once owned by Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar is being demolished.

The mansion’s new owners have hired professional treasure hunters to comb through the rubble in the hope of finding items belonging to the former leader of the Medellin cartel.

The pink mansion in Miami Beach was seized by the US government in 1987.

Pablo Escobar, who was one of the world’s richest men at the time of his death, was killed by Colombian police in 1993.

Christian de Berdouare and his wife Jennifer Valoppi said they were unaware of its history when they bought the four-bedroom mansion from a private owner in 2014.

Pablo Escobar bought the mansion in 1980 and had it for seven years before it was seized by the US authorities.

The new owners said Pablo Escobar never lived there but had visited the property on occasion.Pablo Escobar Miami house demolished

They have hired a team to search for stashes of drugs, money or jewellery, which they suspect may have been hidden inside the mansion or its garden, as was the custom of members of the Medellin cartel.

Jennifer Valoppi said the workers had found a buried safe but that it was stolen before they could open it.

“It was in the ground under some marble and was discovered by some of our workers, but before we even had a chance to remove it, it was stolen, so we’ve been working with police on that,” she said.

Christian de Berdouare, who paid just under $10 million for the mansion, said he was “very excited to see the house of the devil disappearing right before our eyes”.

“This was the biggest criminal in the history of the world. I would like to be associated with something more uplifting, but nevertheless it’s part of the city,” he added.

He said that he believed Pablo Escobar bought the mansion in a residential neighborhood in order “to conduct illicit trade”. He plans to build a new mansion on the site.

Miami was a key entry point for drugs flooding in from South America in the 1980s and many drug lords had mansions and luxury apartments in the city.

The Miami mansion was built in 1948 and has direct access to Biscayne Bay and views of the Miami skyline.

Justin Bieber has appeared in a Miami court accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs.

Police said Justin Bieber, 19, was arrested early on Thursday after racing his sports car on a Miami Beach street.

They said the singer did not co-operate when pulled over and also charged him with resisting arrest without violence and having an expired driving license.

Justin Bieber was granted bail set at $2,500.

The arrest comes a week after his home in Los Angeles was searched by police following allegations he had thrown eggs at his neighbor’s house.

Justin Bieber was accused of causing significant damage to the property. One member of his entourage was arrested for alleged drug possession following the search.

In the latest incident, police said Justin Bieber had been racing a yellow Lamborghini against another sports car in the early hours of Thursday.

The Miami Herald reported that members of the musician’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, effectively creating a drag strip.

Miami-Dade Police said Justin Bieber didn’t co-operate with officers at first, questioning why he had been stopped. He also had an invalid Georgia driver’s license, they alleged.

The driver of the second car – a red Ferrari – was also arrested and both cars impounded, they said.

The other driver was later named as an R&B singer known as Khalil. He was also set bail by the court.

“During the investigation Mr. Bieber made statements that he had consumed some alcohol, that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication,” said Miami Beach police chief Raymond Martinez.

“They were starting from a stop position and they were accelerating to a high rate of speed, going almost double the speed limit… in that area.”

The arrest report said the singer “had slow deliberate movements” and a look of “stupor” when the officer told him to step out of the Lamborghini.

The two men were first taken to Miami Beach police station and later transferred to a Miami-Dade County jail before their court appearance.

The street where police say Justin Bieber was racing is a residential area in mid-Miami Beach.

Small apartment buildings are along one side of the street and on the other side are a high school, a youth centre, a golf course and a fire station.

Like Kim Kardashian, the brunette knew how to accessorize. She carried a pricey Gucci hand bag and wore trendy white sandals.

Before the quickie wedding, Kris Humphries dated Bianka Kamber, a 28-year-old Canadian nurse, who was also full figured and dark haired and considered a “dead ringer” for Kim Kardashian.

There were rumors Kris Humphries had reconciled with Bianka Kamber after his divorce, but they seem unfounded.

Painted as a “husband from hell” by the Kardashians, Kris Humphries – unlike Kim – hasn’t been quick to join the dating pool again.

Aside from romp at the beach with the woman and some other friends, Kris Humphries has been keeping a low profile.
