Former Brink’s armored employee awarded $8.2 M

MIAMI - A former Brink’s armored car employee won an $8.2 million judgement against his former employer in early October in a case stemming from charges that the employee took part in a cash heist.

Mario Martinez was jailed for six months in 1997 on charges that he stole $350,000 cash and was allegedly caught on surveillance videotape. He was acquitted at his criminal trial that same year after jurors determined the tape never showed Martinez had possession of the bag containing the cash.

Martinez filed his civil lawsuit against Brink’s in 2001.
