MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. (CBS News) -- — A fleet of law enforcement vehicles stopped traffic on a major highway Tuesday morning as part of a dramatic takedown of three men accused of plotting a violent robbery of an armored bank vehicle scheduled to pick up millions of dollars, reports CBS affiliate WPEC.
Authorities say the two-year plot was to rob and murder two armored vehicle employees, but they were able to arrest the men just hours before the deadly plan was to be sprung.
The Martin County Sheriff's Office released footage from their air units of the suspects being surrounded by a fleet of law enforcement officers, including from the FBI, on I-95 just south of the SR 714 exit.
