Former Dunbar Armored Truck employee Veronica Bullard has been sentenced to 3 years and 9 months in federal prison and ordered to a pay $104, 694 in restitution fines after her role in a number of robberies around the Atlanta area.
Prosecutors say Bullard provided insider information to others who carried out the series of robberies between October 2010 and March 2011.
“Bullard chose to endanger many of her co-workers’ lives as well as guards from other armored car companies,” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates’ office said in an emailed statement.
“The inside information she gained in her position at Dunbar Armored, Inc., a local armored truck service, fueled a crime spree that left one man dead and another seriously injured. She thought nothing of the escalating violence in each attack. Instead, she continued to abuse her position and access to information all motivated by pure greed.” said the office of Yates.
One man died and another was seriously injured during the robbery spree.
In addition to Bullard, 8 other defendants have also entered guilty pleas as a result of their roles in the robberies.
