On Friday, the police in Los Angeles apprehended two guys who they said robbed at least three armoured vehicles.
The LASD claims that the three robberies with a similar method of operation were discovered in October, prompting an investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Major Crimes Bureau in conjunction with the FBI, Gardena Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
Police in Los Angeles said that the criminals “brazenly, without warning” shot numerous armoured vehicle drivers before robbing them.
People Who Stole the Money
After a thorough investigation, the police were sure that Lamond Akins and Gregory James were the people who stole the money.
Two suspects were taken into custody at about 5 a.m. on Friday after authorities acquired arrest orders for them.
James was held at a hotel on the 17200 block of Downey Avenue in Bellflower, while Atkins was discovered and arrested at his home in the 1600 block of W. 121st Street in Los Angeles.
Sent to the Federal Detention Center
The evidence was found “in large quantities” at both sites, the LASD said. Robbery and unlawful discharge of a firearm charges were filed against Akins and James. Then they were sent to the Federal Detention Center in Los Angeles.
