Kickback-Accused Apple Exec Stuffed $US150,000 In Shoeboxes

Prosecutors in the case against Apple's Paul Devine - accused of taking $US1 million in payola from Asian parts suppliers - say they found $US150,000 in shoeboxes at his home. Investigators are now looking for the rest, at home and abroad.

The prosecution says they've already identified two suspicious safety deposit boxes in the US, along with "a significant number of accounts overseas and a significant amount of money". Devine has been ordered to transfer his foreign holdings, and surrender his and his wife's passports, lest they abscond with whatever other hidden cash is lying around. Devine has pleaded not guilty, but an even more surefire way of exonerating yourself is not being found with $US150,000 stored in shoeboxes. [MacWorld]
