$30 million heist


A $30 million heist at Garda-Sylmar, a cash security guard transport company on Easter Sunday; heist used the advantage of the facility lighter crew & many site-pick-ups closed for the Holiday?

Gardaworld is a Canadian company with offices throughout the United States, including twenty-seven in California. Locally they list Woodland Hills and Sylmar  as San Fernando Valley locations.  Their Sylmar location, a Cash Management Systems facility, received attention this week after a heist speculated to be at a record breaking $30million!

The action timeline as pieced together by law enforcement, with details augmented by neighbors' input, includes:

  • Widespread internet failure
  • Loud explosion - 
  • Roof breached - without triggering alarms

Their website details the Woodland Hills location provides Security Guards, while the Sylmar Cash Management Systems facility provides:

According to the website careers page a CDL Armed Driver - Cash Transport pays $21/hour while the other open position of an Armored Driver Cash Transport pays $20.50/hour - both 25% above California's $16.00/hour minimum wage.

 An adjacent mobile-home park had a chain-inked fence separating it from the Garda facility, which reports have revealed children from the mobile park had trespassed at this point.

It has been suggested by some employees the intricate security system had previously been disrupted.
