FBI Finds More Money Stolen From ATMs

January 14, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

FBI agents found a duffel bag stuffed with $20 bills in a self-storage unit in Boynton Beach, more of the nearly $5 million authorities say a New Jersey ATM serviceman stole from automated teller machines.

Agents wouldn't say how much money they found Friday. They previously recovered $3.5 million at an abandoned Boynton Beach home, and $68,000 from a safe deposit box.

Authorities say Christopher LaCroix has admitted taking $3.5 million from the van of ATM serviceman Michael Schwartz. LaCroix is charged with receipt and possession of stolen money.

Schwartz, 36, was found dead on Christmas Day, after a two-week drinking binge, in an apartment that he briefly shared with LaCroix.
