CLEVELAND - A couple wanted in the disappearance of $7 million in cash and checks from an armored car company was arrested Saturday in West Virginia, the FBI said.

Roger Lee Dillon, 22, and his girlfriend, Nicole N. Boyd, 24, were arrested early Saturday morning outside Beckley, FBI Special Agent Scott Wilson said.

Agents recovered "a large sum of money" at the time of the arrests, Wilson said. The FBI planned to hold a news conference on Monday, Wilson said.

The disappearance of the money was discovered Monday at an armored car garage of AT Systems International, where Dillon was an employee. Two drivers discovered the safes had been cleaned out and called police.

Officials said the alarm system was deactivated, safes were opened and money to be delivered to banks was gone. Then the alarm system was reactivated.

Dillon was charged with bank larceny, and Boyd was charged with aiding and abetting, the FBI said.

Dillon didn't show up for work Tuesday. A pickup truck belonging to him was found in a parking lot in Salem, Ohio, after a resident recognized it from news reports, police said.

Dillon had worked at AT Systems for less than a year, said a representative of Garda, the company that purchased AT Systems in April.
