UPDATE: Police find €2 million stashed inside Amnesia

Authorities are continuing their search today following their initial raid at Amnesia.

After spending 17 hours inside Amnesia Ibiza yesterday, The Guardia Civil returned to the club this morning to resume their search, according to Diario De Ibiza. The authorities spent most of the day their, from 7 AM to midnight, before leaving, which allowed the club to reopen for it's popular Together party last night. 

We have also learned the identities of the people that were arrested during the initial raid: the owner of Amnesia Martin Ferrer, the club's artistic director and son of the owner Marti Ferrer, Amnesia general/business manager David de Felipe and Amnesia's accountant Vicente Pérez de Montis. 

The police are "investigating alleged crimes against the Treasury" according to Diario De Ibiza, and have searched other properties in Ibiza and Barcelona that are owned by the suspects. The search has also continued at various banks in Ibiza where authorities are going through security boxes as well as looking into the suspects' bank accounts. An IT company, which is based in Ibiza and works with Amnesia, has also been searched.

At this point the investigation does look to be more focused on financial crimes rather than an anti-drug operation, which was previously reported by El Mundo.

HYTE is scheduled to have a party at Amnesia tonight and according to the promoter's Facebook, the event is still on. "Business as usual and ready for another massive night at Amnesia Ibiza."
