More details on this month's armored car heist in California


In the early hours of July 11, two armed guards left their Brink’s big rig [at the Flying J truck stop along Interstate 5 in the Grapevine], giving a gang of thieves a 27-minute window to make the huge snatch, its total value still a mystery. Estimates range from $10 million to $100 million.


The gang of thieves was able to quickly bypass the truck’s trailer locking mechanism, enter its vast back and unload a series of storage containers filled with jewelry, diamonds other precious gems, and a plethora of Rolexes and other designer watches
