ROCHESTER, NEW YORK (AP) - Masked gunmen took at least dollars 7m ( pounds 4.6m) from an armoured car depot late on Tuesday in the country's second such robbery in 10 days. Police said employees of the Brink's Inc depot would be given lie-detector tests about what might have been an inside job. One employee said he was abducted at gunpoint and released a few miles away. Earlier reports put the amount stolen at dollars 10m, but police would only describe the haul as 'substantial'.

On 27 December, dollars 8.27m was taken from an armoured truck company in New York City, for which no one has been arrested.
