HOBBS ACT - ARMORED CARRIER ROBBERY

UNKNOWN SUSPECT

THE DETAILS SURROUNDING THE CRIME

On January 31, 2002, the Berkshire Armored Car Service, located in Rutland, Vermont, was robbed of approximately two million dollars. The robbery occurred during the early morning hours when a lone armed male suspect surprised one of the armored car guards as he reported for work. The suspect then forced the guard to let him into the armored car facility. Once inside, the unknown suspect disarmed a second guard already inside and handcuffed and tied up both guards. The suspect then entered the company's vault, removed money bags from the vault, and placed the bags into a vehicle. The suspect then fled the scene in the vehicle.

The vehicle was described as possibly being a dark colored Ford Econoline or Dodge van with a stripe on the side. The vehicle had trouble starting and sounded as though it ran rough.

SUSPECT DESCRIPTION

The unknown suspect is described as a White male, approximately 25 to 35 years old, 5'10", 165 to 170 pounds, with a medium build. He wore a dark ski mask with stripes and cut outs of the eyes and mouth. He also wore a dark, bulky, winter jacket. The suspect carried with him a dark colored revolver, which he held in his right hand. He stole and took with him one of the guard's handguns which is described as a 9mm Glock. His voice was described as being nasal sounding and he spoke with what was described as a New York accent.

REWARD

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this unknown suspect.
