Executives at a New Jersey armored car service that transported cash from banks to automated teller machines allegedly diverted at least $2.5 million in bank funds to payroll expenses, the purchase of season tickets to games of hockey’s Philadelphia Flyers and a personal car, and other illegal uses.

The company, Tri-State Armored Services Inc. of Hammonton, which supplied 3,000 East Coast ATMs, has been shut by federal prosecutors. A former vice president, Daniel Feuker, pleaded guilty March 12 to conspiring to launder more than $1 million in funds belonging to customer banks. A former chief executive officer, William A. Mottin, was arrested March 2 on charges of bank fraud and money laundering.
