TABOR CITY, NC (WECT) - A federal grand jury in South Carolina indicted a prison guard with the Tabor Correctional Institution Tuesday in connection to a plot to rob and behead a business owner in Myrtle Beach, according to court documents.
Agents with the FBI arrested David Lawrence Wallace, Jr. last month at the Tabor City Prison, where prison officials confirm Wallace worked as a guard.
According to a criminal complaint, the FBI received a tip in September that Wallace approached a fellow Army reservist at a drill and wanted him to participate in robbing an armored car facility in Myrtle Beach sometime around Halloween or early 2015.
The complaint says that Wallace was a former employee of the facility in Myrtle Beach, Garda Cash and Logistics, and had knowledge of how the business operated.
According to the criminal complaint, Wallace told the reservist there would be $30 million in the armored car building and that it would be lightly guarded on the weekends.
The criminal complaint explains part of the plan included killing the owner or manager of the company, by possibly beheading him and his wife to make it look like an act of terrorism.
It is revealed in the complaint that the FBI has recorded conversations in which Wallace talked about committing other home invasions to acquire weapons for the heist. In a separate recording, Wallace said he would not be going to prison and the action would be death by cop.
