Margarito and Pedro Flores, twin brothers from Chicago, Illinois, are credited with helping take down one of the most infamous narco-terrorists in the world, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán. Their wives, authors of the book "Cartel Wives," reveal how the brothers hid all the money they trafficked. In 2015, the brothers were sentenced to 14 years in prison. The following is a transcript of the video:

Cartel Wives: So during 2005 to 2008 our husbands trafficked $2 billion to Mexico. And we would see these houses full of money. You know, they had hydraulic walls that would just come out like 007 with millions of dollars. We would have a room full of money. $1-$2 million sitting in the room, you know, for us to grab at our expense and that was usual. They had workers that worked there, you know, eight-hour shifts, three shifts per day just counting money and they would count maybe a million dollars in a couple hours and run it through the machines.

And we're talking, you know, fives and tens and ones, we're talking street money. Now did we benefit from it? Did we live a good life? Yes, of course, we did. We were spoiled, we ate well, we traveled, we would sometimes want to stay on vacation for a month on the beach and just live life to its fullest but at the end of the day we wanted to denounce that life and we knew what mattered to us was love and family and simplicity.
