Eight years after someone stole $1.9 million from an armored car company in Vermont’s largest robbery, the FBI says tips for investigators have nearly run dry.
Authorities say on January 31st, 2002, a lone gunman tied up two guards who had just shown up for work at the Rutland office of Berkshire Armored Car Services. Then he cleaned out the safe. Berkshire later closed the office and it’s now occupied by an automotive shop.
FBI spokeswoman Bonnie Mariano tells the Rutland Herald there’s been no new evidence and investigators aren’t receiving many tips.
The statute of limitations for authorities to bring robbery charges in the case lapsed last year. The case remains open, however, as investigators say there are other charges that could be brought if the gunman is found.
