CLEVELAND – A couple accused in the theft of $7 million in cash and checks from an armored car company remained in federal custody Monday awaiting hearings in West Virginia.
Roger Lee Dillon, 22, and his girlfriend, Nicole N. Boyd, 24, both of Youngstown, Ohio, were arrested by FBI agents Saturday morning outside Beckley, FBI Special Agent Scott Wilson said.
Wilson said agents recovered a large sum of money believed to have been taken in the theft at AT Systems International in Liberty, Ohio, near Youngstown, last week.
Dillon and Boyd have hearings Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge R. Clarke VanDervort in Beckley. Both are being held in the Southern Regional Jail near Beckley. No bond has been set.
The FBI scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon to discuss the arrests.
Dillon was charged with bank larceny, and Boyd was charged with aiding and abetting, the FBI said.
Dillon's mother, Sharon Lee Gregory, 48, of Youngstown, was present when the couple were arrested.
The disappearance of the money was discovered a week ago. Two drivers discovered the safes had been cleaned out and called police. Then the alarm system was reactivated.
Dillon began working at AT Systems' Liberty office less than one year ago, said a representative of Montreal-based Garda, which bought AT Systems in April.
AT Systems' customers are mostly retailers and financial institutions.
