Cryptocurrency Gun-Point Robbery Suspects Deny New York Charges


Three men were charged with robbing a New York City man of $1.8 billion in Ether, a cryptocurrency, in a November kidnapping and armed robbery plot.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance called the scheme “a violent attack that demonstrates the vanishing line between street crime and cybercrime.”

Cesar Guzman, 38, Allan Nunez, 36, and Darrell Colon Jr., 37, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges including kidnapping, robbery and burglary. Prosecutors claim the victim met in Manhattan with Louis Meza, 35, an acquaintance, who set up a phony car-service minivan to take him home. In the van were Nunez, the driver, and Colon, who was hiding in the back with a gun.
