Blue Van Connected With Robbery, Shooting in Dania Beach

The blue van above is thought to have been used in the robbery of a Brink's Security office in Dania Beach this afternoon. According to Broward Sheriff's Office, a Brink's employee sustained a gunshot wound in the robbery, which occurred at the Merrill Industrial Center. The thieves must have had a big score if Brink's is offering $25,000 for information leading to their arrest.

The victim of the gunshot is expected to live. Deputies found a torched blue van shortly after the heist, which probably means the crew has found new wheels. Here's the BSO release.
