Plotters involved with St. Louis’ record $6.6 million ATM Solutions heist were themselves robbed of about 20 percent of the money, says the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. LaTunya Wright, whose former boyfriend was among four armed men who stormed the money depot in 2010, entrusted another woman to help hide at least $2 million in a storage unit. “They stole my stolen money,” Wright cried out after she finished counting the cash later and came up with only $640,000 to $650,000, according to a co-defendant’s plea agreement filed yesterday and a person with knowledge of the investigation. That was at least $1.3 million short.
Three guilty pleas of peripheral players in the crime, and claims about the re-stolen money, could mean a new round of charges in a case in which 14 people have been accused of the robbery, its planning or its aftermath. It also could mean recovery of more money. Only about half of the $6.6 million has been tracked down. It appears that all of the $1.3 million re-stolen portion remains missing.
