A former security guard deported from the US has pleaded not guilty to a £1m security van theft in Suffolk nearly 20 years ago.
Eddie Maher, 57, formerly of South Woodham Ferrers, Essex, appeared via video link at Ipswich Crown Court.
The van went missing from outside Lloyds Bank, in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe in January 1993, and was later found on the town's seafront.
Mr Maher was arrested in Ozark, Missouri, USA in February this year.
He was remanded in custody and his trial is due to take place at Ipswich Crown Court next year.
