Rochester's Rich History
2017-09-16; 1:00  pm - 2:30  pm
Central Library - Rundel Second Floor Conference Room
Age Level: Adult -- Select - Select
Gary Craig discusses his new book, Seven Million, and the legacy of the infamous 1997 Brinks heist.   On a freezing night in January 1993, masked gunmen walked through the laughably lax security at the Rochester Brink’s depot, tied up the guards, and unhurriedly made off with $7.4 million in one of the FBI’s top-five armored car heists in history. Suspicion quickly fell on a retired Rochester cop working security for Brinks at the time—as well it might. Officer Tom O’Connor had been previously suspected of everything from robbery to murder to complicity with the IRA. One ex-IRA soldier in particular was indebted to O’Connor for smuggling him and his girlfriend into the United States, and when he was caught in New York City with $2 million in cash from the Brink’s heist, prosecutors were certain they finally had enough to nail O’Connor. But they were wrong. In Seven Million, the reporter Gary Craig meticulously unwinds the long skein of leads, half-truths, false starts, and dead ends, taking us from the grim solitary pens of Northern Ireland’s Long Kesh prison to the illegal poker rooms of Manhattan to the cold lakeshore on the Canadian border where the body parts began washing up.  Gary Craig has been reporting for Gannett newspapers in Rochester since 1990, largely focusing on criminal justice issues. He has won state, regional and national awards for writing and investigative reporting. He is married with two daughters.
