NOTEWORTHY CASES

1997 |
United States v. Ghantt

Noell Tin represented David Ghantt, the armored car driver who stole 17 million dollars from the Charlotte regional office of Loomis Fargo & Company on the evening of October 4, 1997 and fled to Mexico. It was the third largest cash heist in United States history. An FBI criminal investigation, international in scope, ultimately resulted in the arrest and conviction of eight people directly involved in the heist. The Loomis Fargo Bank Robbery was depicted in an episode of Masterminds and was featured on the docudrama series The FBI Files in a two-part episode entitled “The Un-perfect Crime.” It was also the subject of the book Heist!: The $17 Million Loomis Fargo Theft published in 2002.
