$4 million dollars in gold was reported stolen Sunday, by a group of armed robbers, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
According to authorities, the truck was traveling from Florida to Massachusetts, and took place when two security guards from Transvalue Inc., a company that specializes in transportation of gold, jewels and other valuable commodities, pulled off to the side of road at about 6 p.m. They believed their truck was having technical difficulties and wanted to see what was wrong.
After they went out to investigate the potential risk to the vehicle, three men leapt out of a white van armed with guns. The men then told the security guards to get on the ground, where their hands were tied behind their backs. The guards were then lead into the woods, leaving the vehicle unsupervised.
The thieves were able to get away, and there is still little information known about the case and many are wondering what the suspects looked like, or what kind of car they were driving to escape. The Office of Wilson County Sheriff Calvin Woodard, Jr. has yet to answer any questions that have been asked in recent messages.
Spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Charlotte field office, Shelley Lynch, says that investigators are looking into the case to determine whether or not this should be classified as a federal crime.
