Aqueduct racetrack heist an inside job

The robbery took place after Gotham Day stakes races at the Queens racetrack.
Two men were convicted in a brazen armed robbery at Aqueduct Racetrack that net more than $284k. A Brooklyn jury found Lafayette Morrison and Lamel Miller, both 39, guilty. They face seven years to life for the March 2020 heist.

During the theft, two men held up several employees at gunpoint. Among the staff was Morrison, who had been working as a security guard at the track.
