A $50,000 reward is being offered for information in the theft of $4 million in gold Sunday evening from a truck on I-95 in North Carolina.

Guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami had mechanical problems and pulled off the highway in eastern North Carolina about 6:30 p.m. They told police they were surprised by three armed men driving a white van. The bandits reportedly ordered the guards to lie on the ground, tied their hands behind their backs and made them walk into the nearby woods.

The load was being transported from Miami to Massachusetts.

Transvalue is offering a $50,000 reward for any information leading to the arrests of the suspects responsible or recovery of the stolen property, according to published reports.

According to its website, Transvalue has an "extensive domestic network allowing us to offer armored overnight shipping of valuables to most major cities in the U.S."

    Let's see. $4 million in gold, and only $50,000 in reward money? Guess that's why the guards weren't smart enough to STAY IN THE TRUCK AND CARL FOR HELP.

    That's what I say too ! Only 50,000 in reward for 4 million ....good luck . My thoughts on that are ,how was it that 3 armed robbers just happen to stumble up at the right time to find a truck with 4 million on the side of the road in this big country . Timing ,timing . 2 in 2 don't make 4 on that setup . But that's a heck of a payday for 3 just happen to stumble and rob a broke down truck . At least with the gold they can melt it down and refigure it to sell . Lol .
