2 women accused of hiding loot in Missouri ATM heist
Thursday, October 7, 2010
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Two women are accused in a federal indictment of helping stash what's being called "substantial" amounts of cash stolen during a well-orchestrated, daylight heist of an ATM-servicing business in St. Louis.
LaTunya Wright and Annkesha Welch of St. Louis were indicted Wednesday on charges of conspiracy and of interstate transport of stolen currency. Those counts replace a criminal complaint against them last month.
No one has been charged directly in the Aug. 25 holdup of ATM Solutions, though a man investigators consider a suspect remains jailed on a weapons charge.
Authorities say four armed, black-clad bandits overpowered and subdued two workers at the business and locked them in a vault before absconding in an armored vehicle with loot-filled containers.
Authorities haven't said how much money was taken.
The women's attorneys either didn't comment or didn't return messages.
