... was sterile and clearly not lived in even though they tried to tell us he lives there. It included a car they used to transport drugs, a jet ski, trophies and things sent to Roberto from famous fans, mostly sporting heroes. We saw a fake trap door that led to another room complete with oxygen tank (fake as the police destroyed the real one, this was just for the tour).
