None - PITTSBURGH -- Police said they've found some of the money that a Pittsburgh armored car guard allegedly stole, but the suspect is still at large.

Investigators continue to search for Kenneth Konias, 22. Konias is accused of shooting his partner in the back of the head inside a Garda Cash Logistics truck last week, and making off with $2.3 million.

Investigators said they found $20,000 hidden at his grandmother's gravesite at Saint Mary Magdalene Cemetery in Homestead.

Sources told Channel 11 News that Konias called his mother after the crime and said, "You should go see grandma."

Channel 11 News has also learned that another $250,000 was found at Konias' Dravosburg home where he lived with his parents.

Pittsburgh police Commander Thomas Stangrecki said authorities are getting numerous tips and have made progress in a number of ways, but he wouldn't provide details.

According to police, they got a tip Wednesday afternoon about a man who looked like Konias at the Wateroworks Mall. Officers checked it out, but didn’t find anything, police said.

Authorities said Konias called friends and family after the killing, and asked one person about extradition laws in Canada and Mexico.
