An armoured truck security guard is on the run after allegedly shooting his partner in the head and vanishing with more than $2million in cash.
Kenneth Konias Jr, 22, is accused of killing Michael Haines, 31, in the back of the truck after the men, both Garda Cash Logistics guards, had made several stops to collect money.
Haines was discovered dead in the truck when it was found idling under a bridge in Pittsburgh on Tuesday afternoon.


Kenneth Konias Jr, 22, left allegedly shot his partner Michael Haines, 31, right and went on the run with more than $2m in cash
'This is a premeditated murder,' Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala told Wpxi.com.
'Our belief is that he planned to rob the company and if he had to kill the guard then he planned to do that. He shot the guy from close range in the back of the head to accomplish the robbery. Thatís pretty cold.'

The truck had picked up money from the Rivers Casino shortly before 9am that day and was found about 3.40pm, after the guards had made several stops elsewhere, police said.
Pittsburgh police major crimes Cmdr. Thomas Stangrecki told The Associated Press that surveillance video from the area shows the truck had been parked under the bridge since shortly before 1.30pm that day.

Grim discovery: Haines was discovered dead in the truck when it was found idling under a bridge in Pittsburgh, pictured, on Tuesday afternoon

Garda officials have offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Konias
'There's a time lapse from when the truck was parked' until it was found, Stangrecki said. 'He must have gone to the company parking lot where his car, his Ford Explorer, was parked, and got there and left the area.'
Homicide detectives went to the address where Konias lived with his parents in Dravosburg and found his bloody uniform jacket in his bedroom.
Stangrecki said Konias' family is cooperating with the investigation and had not been aware of the robbery.
'We know that he returned to his family's home, left the jacket and left the house,' Stangrecki said. 'He may have come home normally from work like he always does. And he hasn't been seen since.'

So far, police don't believe Konias had any help.
'At this point, no, it looks like he's the brains behind this incident,' Stangrecki said.
The police report shows that Konias called a friend after the alleged shooting, reports Wpxi.com.
He said, 'I f***ked up. My life is over.'
He allegedly told the friend he had killed someone and that he had enough money to live on for the rest of his life.
The FBI was also investigating, and is still auditing the exact amount of money taken from the truck.

Man-hunt: Police said he is driving a tan Ford Explorer with Pennsylvania license plate number GZW-4572
Garda officials have offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and released a statement saying company officials are 'shocked and deeply saddened at the death of our colleague and extend our condolences to his family.
'We are continuing to assist law enforcement it its investigation of this incident.'
Stangrecki said investigators notified Pittsburgh International Airport and officials at various transportation agencies as well as U.S. border authorities to be alert for Konias in the nationwide manhunt.
Authorities believe Konias may have two guns - his service pistol and another hand gun, and Zappala told reporters, 'We are trying to stress how dangerous this individual is.'
'We want everybody looking for him.'
Police said he is driving a tan Ford Explorer with Pennsylvania license plate number GZW-4572.

Why kill the guy? Handcuff his arms and legs, leave him in the truck with AC running. Take the $2M. Better to be on the hook for a massive robbery than a massive robbery + murder.

He'll probably be caught within a month, since he seems like a loser. I bet he will keep his phone with him and get tracked by it.

That's a lot of dough.... With technology the way it is now-a-days disappearing is a lot harder than it used to be though.

wow.

these stories always make me think about this.

he's already ahead of them but still has his explorer likely.

I would have saved up and bought a common cheap beater car for cash that I never registered, grabbed a license plate from a car like it at a shopping mall, tinted the windows, and parked it somewhere nearby but secluded.

did the deed, left the parents house with the money, jumped into the other car and been on the road trying to get as far away as possible as quick as possible and lay low for a while.

He better have a plan on how to get out of the country and get somewhere that won't extradite and the cash will go further.

I'm thinking Brazil or possibly Portugal.

Risk vs reward was on a decent level until the murder took place.

Hes obviously thought about it. I bet the guy gets away. To shoot a man in the back of the head is nuts.

I doubt the murder was part of it. He obviously planned it out, but the fact he called a friend and said he f'd up makes me think something unplanned happened and he panicked. These guys make like 13 bucks an hour, so I'm sure the guy he killed would have happily just let him go with the money. That friend he ended up calling is going to be looked at bigtime by the FBI now, too.

Could be part of his plant to distract the FBI to look at the friend while he's on the run.

I worked in the armored car game for 2 years. Job is fun, but pay is lousy. A guy I worked with was making 16 bucks and had 14 years in. lol

Probably should have just knocked the guy out and tied him up and left him in the back of the truck. What a dumbass.

His partner was probably in on the heist but had second thoughts and ended up Caesar'd.

This reminds me of the story line in "The Next Three Days" with Russell Crowe.

He better be on his way to Canada right now. Could be difficult without fake a fake ID.

The guy he killed looks way bigger and stronger than him. I doubt he could overpower him.

If he shot him in the back of the head then he could have pistol whipped him in the back of the head. I promise you that no matter how big you are, a pistol to the back of your head is going to knock your *** out.

The guy shouldn't have killed his partner, now when he get's caught that's a life sentence but he's probably on a boat sailing away with the money, not sure if it's easy to be tracked on a boat or not though.
