Search warrants in the case involving the man accused in the killings and a robbery at the University of Alberta campus allege nearly $2 million dollars could have been taken in the June 15th heist.
The search warrant dated June 15th, alleges that the armoured car company G4S claimed $600,000 and up to $1.9 million dollars remained unaccounted for.
The search warrant was unsealed by a judge after an application by two media groups in Edmonton.
Travis Baumgartner, 21, is accused of fatally shooting three co-workers and critically wounding another.
He was apprehended at the U.S. border. And according to authorities, Baumgartner had more than $300,000 on him when he was located at the border.
Baumgartner’s mother Sandy told a detective she found about $64,000 in cash on her kitchen table after the heist. In the document she also told the detective she and her son had a fight about rent money before his shift.
The search claims she saw her son’s work boots in the home, but that there was no other sign of her son.
The search warrant also reveals that guards appeared to have been shot while they were in the position of loading money into the bank machine inside Hub Mall.
