Two armed security guards from Trans Value, in Miami, were transporting a shipment of silver and gold to Massachusetts when they stopped, The Wilson Times reported. They were approached by three armed men in a white van who ordered the victims to get on the ground, then tied their hands behind their backs and ordered them to walk into the woods, the report said.
