Roberto Ignacio Solis, a convicted felon, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the October 1, 1993, theft of an armored car in Las Vegas, Nevada. After the armored car arrived at a casino, two messenger guards left the vehicle to service the casino's ATMs. Solis' female accomplice, who was employed as the driver of the armored car and who has since been convicted and served time, then drove away with approximately $3,100,000. Using a variety of disguises and identities, the couple fled to Colorado, and then Florida, before leaving the United States.


On February 17, 1994, a federal warrant was issued for Solis' arrest by the United States District Court, District of Nevada, after he was charged federally with bank larceny, aiding and abetting, conspiracy, false statement in application for a passport, interstate transportation of stolen property, flight to avoid prosecution, bank fraud, use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, transport of a firearm in interstate commerce, and fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents.
