(Newser) – A couple suspected of pulling off an inside job to steal $7 million in cash from an Ohio armored car company have been nabbed after less than a week on the run, AP reports. FBI agents tracked down the pair in West Virginia, and recovered  "a large sum of money" from the heist, said an agent.

One of the two, an employee who worked at AT Systems International for less than a year, disappeared with the cash last week after deactivating the alarms, police said. The money was to go to local banks, but two drivers discovered it missing and called police. The worker has been charged with bank larceny; his girlfriend with aiding and abetting.
