AMSA Heist


June 26, 1990 - AMSA (Armored Motor Services of America) truck robbed of $10.8 million in Henrietta. The truck's driver, Albert M. Ranieri, was an early suspect and later was snared as part of the case against high-profile lawyer Anthony Leonardo. David Farley has been linked to the heist by a special agent, Albert Zenner, but no charges have been brought against him relating to that case.

As part of his plea in a complicated case that included murder-for-hire allegations, Leonardo agreed to testify against Ranieri regarding the heist and the May 2000 murder of Anthony Vaccaro, Leonardo's business partner. Ranieri pleaded guilty to racketeering crimes in 2002, including the armored car robbery and murder. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
