Man receives probation for aiding armored car heist
The second person involved in an armored car robbery in 2011 will not face active prison time thanks to his cooperation with authorities following his arrest.
Jerry Blake Bogan, 39, conspired with 24-year-old Alex Stephen Loftis to rob the Dunbar Armored truck for which Loftis worked.
On the morning of Nov. 10, Loftis was making a scheduled delivery to an ATM at the Exxon on Radio Hill in Canton. When his co-worker exited the vehicle to drop off the money, Loftis allowed Bogan to enter the truck. Bogan took the man’s gun and was accused of using a Taser on him, although Bogan denied that action.
Bogan later made away with about $1.2 million and Loftis drove to the State Employees Credit Union where his co-worker, who did not realize Loftis was part of the robbery, called the police.
