The State : Armored Car Stand-In, $800,000 Stolen

December 18, 1985

Robbers in San Francisco took advantage of a strike by armored car workers to steal a vehicle loaded with nearly $800,000. Police Inspector Jim Bergstrom said two masked gunmen stole one of two autos being used as substitutes for armored cars to pick up money at a grocery store. He said that while the money-collectors were inside the Lucky supermarket, gunmen forced the drivers to lie face down in one car and drove off with the other, which had nearly $800,000 in the trunk.
