More than a year after the daring heist, where are the gold bars?
When three Miami men stole 10 bars from a courier truck at gunpoint off a North Carolina highway, FBI agents would have an easier time cracking the case than recovering the $5 million worth of gold.
In fact, agents have recovered only one of the stolen bars — from a Miami pawnbroker soon after the March 1, 2015, caper. The rest has likely been cut up, melted down and resold in the local jewelry market, according to newly released court records. The gold, which was being shipped to Massachusetts, belonged to an Opa-locka precious metals refinery.
