Suspected militant arraigned in robbery
HARTFORD — A suspected Puerto Rican militant pleaded not guilty yesterday to federal charges related to a $7 million robbery of the Wells Fargo armored-car depot in 1983.
Avelino Gonzalez Claudio, 65, is one of more than a dozen suspected members of the Puerto Rican nationalist group Los Macheteros thought by federal authorities to have planned and carried out the heist, one of the largest in American history.
Mr. Gonzalez, who was arrested earlier this month in Puerto Rico, answered “not guilty” to counts of robbery by force of a federally insured bank, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, the interstate or foreign transport of stolen goods, and conspiracy against the United States.
The robbery in West Hartford was reportedly carried out by Victor Gerena, a Wells Fargo driver recruited by the independence group. Mr. Gonzalez is accused of helping Mr. Gerena and the half-ton of cash escape the United States.
