Armored-car employee sought in $15 million theft

Authorities searched Monday for an armored car company employee and a company van after discovering as much as $15 million missing from a warehouse.

The same company - Loomis, Fargo & Co. - was stung in March by one of the largest armored car robberies in U.S. history. Most of the $18 million stolen in the earlier heist was recovered.Police bulletins were issued Sunday for David Scott Ghantt, 27, of Kings Mountain, N.C., who officials said disappeared during or after his Saturday work shift at Loomis Fargo.

"We aren't sure how much is missing," said FBI spokesman Bob Wanamaker. "You can't make a count that fast. We do know it's a very substantial amount of money."
