Jordan man ordered to prison in ATM business heist
Friday, October 14, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A planner of one of the largest robberies in St. Louis history has been sentenced to six years in federal prison and three years of subsequent probation.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/p8NbHk) reports that 25-year-old Hussein Odeh from Jordan admitted he supplied a car used in the August 2010 holdup of ATM Solutions and hid some of the $6.6 million taken in the heist.
Authorities say four armed men forced their way into the business, took firearms from both employees and tied them up, then made off with the loot in a company van after deciding their car would not hold all the money.
Odeh could be deported before he finishes his sentence.
Odeh pleaded guilty in May charges of conspiracy and transportation of stolen goods.
