A Fort Lauderdale, Florida, man on trial for robbery is hoping for some help in his defense from a newly discovered source — the National Security Agency’s phone surveillance data.
Terrence Brown, 40, has been charged with the robbery of multiple armored trucks on their way to banks in the South Florida area. The robberies took place over the course of several months ending on October 1st, 2010. Brown and four other men have all pleaded not guilty.
A sixth man, Nathaniel Morris, 34, is already serving life in prison for the murder of one of the truck drivers outside of a Bank of America during the last hold-up. Morris is co-operating with the prosecution in order to avoid the death penalty, and has testified that the five men currently on trial were his accomplices.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday that the case hinges on the suspects’ phone records, as the FBI is trying to use them to corroborate Morris’s testimony by proving that all of the suspects were nearby when the robberies and murder took place.
