4th Man Charged In Big St. Louis Heist

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A fourth man is now facing federal indictment for one of the largest robberies in St. Louis history.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis says 21-year-old Aaron Hassan Johnson is accused of being the fourth robber of the ATM Solutions business in St. Louis. Four armed men took $6.6 million in the holdup in August of last year.

Johnson pleaded not guilty Wednesday of obstructing commerce by robbery and use of a firearm during a crime of violence.

Three of the robbers have already pleaded guilty, and two have been sentenced — one to 32 years in prison and one to nearly 20. About half of the stolen money has been recovered.
