COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – It was one of the biggest heists in U.S. history and it happened in South Carolina.

In May 2007, five thieves made off with nearly $10 million from an Express Teller armored car in Columbia.

However, it wasn’t long before most of the suspects – four of whom were from Darlington County – were in police custody.

This episode of Carolina True Crime takes a look back at this inside job and the decisions the thieves made that ultimately led to their capture.
