Suspect in Armored Car Heist Extradited to Chile

SANTIAGO – One of the suspects in the 2014 robbery of $9 million in cash from a Brink’s truck returned to Chile on Thursday from Spain, where he was detained in June.

Kevin Olguin, 23, was arrested in Barcelona on an Interpol warrant. The Spanish government subsequently approved his extradition to Chile and he arrived in Santiago in the company of two Chilean police officers.

Authorities believe that Olguin spent time in the Dominican Republic, Italy and France as well as Spain during his two years on the lam.

In June, a Chilean court imposed sentences of up to 10 years in prison on five people found guilty of the heist that became known in Chile as the “robbery of the century.”

Another suspect, Alfredo Alvarez, remains at large.

Masked gunmen entered the cargo area of Santiago International Airport minutes before 6:00 a.m. on Aug. 12, 2014, and threatened the Brink’s guards who were preparing to load 6 billion pesos ($9 million) in cash aboard a plane bound for northern Chile.

Authorities have recovered only around 10 percent of the loot.
