MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The accused mastermind behind a heist in which nearly three million dollars in gold was stolen in Coral Gables is on the run.

Raonel Valdez Valhuerdis vanished days ago after he cut off his ankle monitor while out on bond.

Investigators said he came up with the plan to steal at gun point two rolling suitcases filled with more than 100 pounds of gold flakes from a courier working for a Bolivian export company.

Prosecutors said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
