PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities say the western Pennsylvania armored car guard wanted for allegedly killing his partner and stealing more than $2 million admitted the crimes in phone calls following the killing.

A criminal complaint says 22-year-old Kenneth Konias Jr. told one friend he'd killed someone and tried to persuade the friend to run away with him and live off the stolen money.

Authorities have been searching for Konias since Tuesday, when he allegedly shot and killed his partner in a Garda Cash Logistics truck. Police say Konias is armed and very dangerous.

The body of 31-year-old Michael Haines was found in the back of the truck when company workers went to find out why it had been idling under a Pittsburgh bridge.

Garda is offering a $100,000 reward in the case.
