Masked Robbers Steal $120K During Newark Airport Heist

( 4UMF NEWS ) Masked Robbers Steal $120K During Newark Airport Heist:

A pair of armed robbers escaped Newark Liberty International Airport with a whopping $120,000 in cash stolen from a Smarte Carte office Sunday, according to a police source.

The masked assailants stormed the luggage cart rental service’s office tucked away inside Terminal B during the brazen 2 p.m. heist and tied up two employees, Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said.

One of the suspects brandished a gun during the holdup before the duo fled cash-in-hand, leaving the employees bound with their hands behind their back.

The employees were not injured during the airport caper, Pentangelo added.

It’s unclear how the gunmen knew to target the administrative office for its trove of cash in an area closed to the public near the airport’s security checkpoint.

No arrests have been made.
