There was new information Thursday in a string of high profile armored car robberies. DeKalb County police have linked three people to the murder of Garda Armored Car guard Gary Castillo. Investigators said it may have been an inside job.
In October of 2010, a Dunbar Armored Car courier was robbed a gunpoint while making a cash pick-up at the Mex-America Latino Service on South Marietta Parkway.
Over the course of a six month investigation, Marietta detectives collaborated with the FBI on a series or armored car robberies throughout the Metro Atlanta area.
As the Marietta investigation continued, additional leads caused investigators to collaborate with Gwinnett County Police Department investigators, who were investigating armored car robberies in that jurisdiction.
Marietta detectives eventually established that 32-year-old Veronica Bullard, a Dunbar employee conspired with 34-year-old Quentin Booker, 34-year-old Stacey Dooley and Chris Bennett, who is deceased, to carry out the Marietta robbery.
Bullard, an armored car driver, turned herself in to Marietta police Wednesday night and was charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
On Thursday, Dooley, 27-year-old Ashley Henderson and an unnamed adult male were identified by DeKalb County as suspects in the March 25 armed robbery and fatal shooting of Castillo.
All three were charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Investigators also linked Henderson, Dooley and the unnamed male to a second armored car robbery in DeKalb County. Detectives suspect a Loomis courier servicing a Wells Fargo ATM on Road was ambushed and fired upon repeatedly on January 21.
Detectives signed warrants charging Henderson, Dooley, the unnamed adult male and Booker in that robbery.
Bullard is being held at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond. Henderson, Dooley and Booker currently remain in the Gwinnett County jail. The identified adult male remains at large.
This is a multi-jurisdictional investigation involving the DeKalb County Police Department, DeKalb District Attorney’s Office, FBI and Gwinnett County Police.
