Ten years after a New York Brink’s depot was emptied at gunpoint of $7.4 million, a former rebel from Northern Ireland contends in a memoir that he masterminded the heist, according to the Associated Press.

Samuel Millar writes about the infamous 1993 stickup in “On the Brinks.” Millar was convicted in 1994 along with an Irish-born priest, Patrick Moloney, of stashing $2 million from the robbery in a New York City apartment.

No one was convicted of the actual robbery — a Brink’s guard was acquitted of carrying out an inside job — and no one can be charged now because the statute of limitations ran out five years later.

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports the book fails to solve the mysterious disappearance of Joseph “Ronnie’’ Gibbons, a friend of Millar, last seen in 1995 in upstate New York.
