BANK ROBBER ARREST
TWO YEAR PLOT TO ROB ARMORED BANK CAR AND MURDER DRIVERS ENDS WITH DRAMATIC TAKEDOWN ON INTERSTATE IN MARTIN COUNTY, THREE ARRESTED The execution of a plot to rob and murder two armored car employees who were scheduled to pick up millions of dollars in cash in Port St. Lucie, ended in Martin County with a dramatic takedown involving the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Port St. Lucie Police, St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office and the FBI. Three suspects who were plotting to commit the violent robbery were arrested just hours before they could pull off the deadly heist. Through investigative leads, the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, (a multi-agency unit specializing in violent crimes in South Florida), was able to develop enough probable cause to arrange a special operation take-down that spanned from Palm Beach County to St. Lucie County. That operation concluded on the interstate in Martin County, as multiple law enforcement agencies converged upon the car carrying the violent masterminds of the failed deadly plot. The suspects, identified as Daryl Canady a/k/a, “Doo-Doo”, Alger Lee Ellison, a/k/a, “Al’, and Martiavius Leon Williams, a/k/a, “Man” , all of Palm Beach County, were taken into custody after being surrounded by a swarm of law enforcement officials in the southbound lanes of I-95, just south of the SR 714 exit. The takedown happened before 9:00am, on Tuesday, February, 20th. Law enforcement officers shut down part of the interstate to avoid any potential danger to passing motorists. Within moments, the suspects surrendered. According to the federal affidavit, the group had planned to rob an arrmored truck picking up a large bank run from a PNC Bank, located at 1309 SW Gatlin Boulevard in Port St. Lucie. The suspects mapped out a plan to steal millions of dollars before shooting and killing the two employees in the truck. Once that was successful, the suspects planned to carry out a second deadly robbery targeting another armored bank car. The three suspects were arrested and taken back to Palm Beach County. They remain in federal custody.Posted by Martin County Sheriff's Office on Thursday, March 1, 2018
A two-year plot to steal $4 million from armored vehicles in south Florida and murder the drivers was foiled by authorities in dramatic fashion, just hours before the deadly heist was due to be executed.
Multiple law enforcement agencies surrounded the suspects’ vehicle on an Interstate road in Martin County, leading to the arrest of three men. Dramatic aerial footage posted by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office shows dozens of law enforcement vehicles arriving on the scene as armed officers apprehend the suspects.
The suspects, described by police as “violent masterminds of the failed deadly plot,” were identified as Daryl Canady, also known as “Doo-Doo,” Alger Lee Ellison, and Martiavius Leon Williams, also known as “Man.”
According to a federal affidavit, the Palm Beach County men had planned to rob an armored truck enroute from a large bank run at a PNC Bank in Port St. Lucie. The suspects had mapped out a plan to steal millions of dollars before shooting and killing the two employees in the truck.
Following that robbery, the suspects intended to carry out a second deadly robbery, targeting another armored bank car. Details of the heist were divulged to an FBI informant who was instrumental in leading to the takedown, TCPalm News reported.
Evidence gathered by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, a multi-agency unit specializing in violent crimes in South Florida, was enough to develop probable cause and sanction a special takedown operation. The long-planned robbery and murder plot was foiled on February 20, but footage was only released on Thursday. The three suspects remain in federal custody.
