David Ghantt (@DavidGhantt) is a man that still holds the record for the second largest bank heist on American Soil. As a vault supervisor for Loomis Fargo, David had access to the vaults and all the cash within. And, with the help of several others David made off with $17.3 million dollars, 11 million of which was in 20’s. It was quite literally “a ton” of cash. The heist was recently seen as a comedy starring Zach Galifianakis as David. The film also featured Kristen Wig, Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis.
After being captured by the FBI roughly 9 months later, he served 7.5 years in Federal Prison and continues to pay restitution to this day. David estimates it will take him around 700 years to pay everything back that he owes.
Today, David operates heavy machinery for a living, or as he calls it, playing with Tonka toys for grown ups. He enjoys his photography and David is always ready to go and catch a big one in one of the many water resources he has to choose from in Florida.
