    "The Los Angeles Police Department responded to three separate alarms at GardaWorld's Sylmar cash storage facility on the day that thieves stole as much $30 million from its vault during the biggest heist in the city's history.

    Despite the officers' presence at the property in the early hours of Easter Sunday — including around the time it is believed the sophisticated burglary was carried out — the criminals remained undetected, according to three law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation of the incident.

    During at least one of the responses by a patrol car, GardaWorld was alerted, according to the officials, but the Montreal-based security services company did not register the intrusion.

    The Times has previously reported that GardaWorld did not learn of the crime until opening the vault the following day, April 1. It wasn't until then, officials said, that LAPD investigators were notified that a substantial amount of money had been taken."
