It was by all accounts a daring robbery--in broad daylight, at a crowded mall near Phoenix, a Wells Fargo van carrying over half a million dollars in cash went missing. It was just as clearly a professional job: there were no eyewitnesses, no fingerprints, and no DNA evidence--just a dead driver and an empty van.
Bill Kurtis and the AMERICAN JUSTICE® team detail the difficult investigation that followed, where the police relied as much on their instinct as external evidence, and their hunches pointed them to an unlikely triumvirate of two bounty hunters and an ex-cop. With the help of the FBI, they began 24-hour surveillance of the suspects, an undertaking that paid off extremely well, which is obvious from the arrest footage included in this fascinating program.
