Details of $1M Calif. Warehouse Heist Emerge

July 11, 2011  | 

Robbers who broke through the roof of a southern California warehouse and stole $1 million from an armored car business used rope to rappel into the building and likely circumvented a video surveillance system.

At about 7:30 p.m. Thursday, three robbers entered through the roof of the Commonwealth International building in South El Monte. Here's an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times about what happened next:

[T]hey dropped down a rope and wove their way through a complex of vaults and safe rooms inside the building. They first jumped a manager, blindfolding him and binding his hands, [Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Kent] Wegener said. They forced the manager to summon two other employees, who were also blindfolded and bound. The robbers took about 20 minutes dragging cash from the main vault out a side exit to a car, Wegener said.

If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck it probably is a duck-inside job by current or ex employees most likely is my guess.
