MIAMI (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Federal authorities say they’ve arrested a former Brinks manager charged with stealing roughly $3.2 million from a Brinks facility on New Year’s Day.
The FBI says Jose Agurto, 37, was arrested without incident in California on Saturday. Agents said in a release that they had located some money, but did not say how much.
Agurto is scheduled to appear before a judge in San Diego on Monday.
Authorities said Agurto robbed the armored car courier company in Miami but gave no other details of the incident.
Here in North Texas, it wasn’t a robbery but an open door on a Brinks truck that made news. One afternoon in April, Weatherford police started receiving calls about drivers stopping along Interstate-20 to pick up loose cash scattered along the roadway and median.
Police said the bills came from a Brinks armored truck that had an open side passenger door. Officials said while a number of people made off with the cash they found, many people returned the money they scooped up.
