Two men who prosecutors say may have squirreled away much of the $11 million stolen from a Bronx armored car company in 1982 were given lengthy prison sentences in New York. U.S. District Judge Edward Weinfeld called Nicholas Gregory a “professional criminal” and sentenced him to 18 years in prison. Gerassimos Vinieris, convicted of helping to hide some of the loot, was sentenced to 15 years. The judge criticized both defendants for maintaining a “stony silence” on the location of the stolen money. About $1.5 million has been recovered.
