$4.8 Million in Gold Taken from Truck in North Carolina Robbery

March 03, 2015  | 

The normally pitch-black stretch of Interstate 95 in North Carolina was illuminated only by a dozen Wilson County Sheriff's squad cars and emergency vehicles. 

A reported $4.8 million gold heist Sunday night brought the sheriff’s investigators to a tractor-trailer that was parked on the shoulder of the heavily traveled interstate that crosses through Wilson County. 

Three suspects reportedly took numerous bars of gold that had been placed in barrels, said Wanda Samuel, sheriff’s office chief of staff.

The Wilson Times has learned that about 275 pounds of gold was reported stolen from the tractor-trailer parked along a heavily wooded area.

This sounds like an inside job,truck breaks down and no sooner does it do that than three bad guys with masks show up and steal the gold,better hurry up because that gold is easy to get rid of if you melt it down and sell it to jewelers or at coin shows in bullion form.
