Police Investigate Brazen Robbery of Brink’s Truck at Flying J. Travel Center

On July 11, 2022, while en route to the Pasadena Convention Center, a Brinks truck became the site of a staggering heist. The vehicle had been loaded the previous night after an exhibit hosted by the International Gem and Jewelry Show in San Mateo.

In the video, two baffled drivers, Tandy Motley and James Beaty, are seen interacting with the police. They recount how they left their truck unattended for around 30 minutes. Beaty had been resting in the 18-wheeler’s sleeper berth, while Motley was inside the rest stop eating.

The pair waited for the police to arrive before inspecting the truck themselves. The footage captures their realization of the extent of the robbery.

Upon an officer’s inquiry concerning if they noticed anyone tailing them that night, Motley mentions no one was following, but a particular individual caught his attention.

Tandy Motley, one of the drivers, suggested he noticed an individual acting suspiciously while the truck was being loaded. His account hints the perpetrators might have been observing them from the start; though it’s unclear if the observed person was connected to the theft.

Before they proceed to open the truck door, Beaty discloses they were transporting about $2.7 million worth of diamonds and jewelry. “That’s why we need you guys here,” he informs the police.

Motley then begins to count the remaining merchandise. Of the 73 bags that had been loaded initially, only 49 remain. “Holy s—,” responds Beaty, prompting Motley to recount. “That’s a lot.”

Brinks is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with 14 affected jewelers regarding the incident. According to the jewelers, the stolen merchandise was valued at approximately $100 million, making this potentially the largest heist of its kind in U.S. history.
