    Sounds like the Brinks guards either had good SA or were lucky, or the BG were pretty bad shot. Either way good for them, they get to go home.

    Were these armed Brinks "guards" (like the truck drivers) or just someone else? If the former, it definitely isn't a good sign when the BGs start robbing clearly armed people.

    Other reports say that the Brinks guards fired back at the men. Having guns being fired at them apparently discouraged the robbers greatly, and made them decide to abandon their robbery attempt.

    Here is this other news report:

    http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local-b...108425999.html


    This incident happened over 3 weeks ago. One of the would be robbers was captured by a heavily armed Miami FBI SWAT team two days after the attempted robbery. The suspect's name is Gerard Stevens Thomas. Here is his booking photo down below.

    He really does not look like he is stupid in this photo:

    They weren't deterred by the sight of the guard's guns...but they were certainly deterred by the bullets whizzing by!
