Thieves take millions out of Brinks storage

Burglars struck at a Brinks warehouse stuffed with cash over the holiday weekend, making off with more than $3.34-million meant to restock area bank vaults after Labor Day, the FBI said Wednesday.

The burglary was discovered Tuesday when Brinks workers returned after the long weekend to an area of the warehouse where cash earmarked for banks is kept, said FBI Agent Brian Kensel.

Brinks spokesman Marvin Moss refused to comment. The Darien, Conn., company transports cash and other valuables to and from banks and businesses in armored trucks, often holding funds in transit.

Kensel said he could not comment on whether there was forced entry to the warehouse, or what type of security systems were in use there.
