HARTFORD, Conn. ­ A Puerto Rican nationalist 
sought by U.S. authorities for more than 25 years 
has pleaded not guilty to charges in connection 
with one of the nation's largest bank robberies.

Sixty-five-year-old Norberto Gonzalez Claudio 
faces 15 counts, including bank robbery, 
conspiracy and transportation of stolen money for 
his alleged role in the 1983 robbery of $7 
million at a Wells Fargo armored car depot in West Hartford, Conn.

Gonzalez was originally charged in 1985. He is 
suspected of helping smuggle the cash out of the 
U.S. mainland with the Los Macheteros militant independence group.

Gonzalez appeared Friday in U.S. District Court 
in Hartford, where he was ordered held without bond.

Victor Manuel Gerena, the Wells Fargo driver who 
allegedly stole the money, remains the only suspect still at large.
