Armed robbers raid Tipperary jewellers

Two men armed with a gun and a hammer carried out the robbery.

ARMED ROBBERS MADE off with a large quantity of jewellery after a raid on a shop in Clonmel, Co Tipperary on Monday.

Gardaí say that two men, armed with a gun and a hammer, entered Annerley Jewellers on O’Connell Street in Clonmel, Co Tipperary at around 11am on Monday morning.

The raiders smashed a glass display cabinet and picked out what gardaí say is a large quantity of rings and bracelets before fleeing down Shelmadens Lane onto New Quay.

The men got away in a silver Volkswagon which was later found abandoned at Colligan in Dungarven. Gardaí say that the car had been taken from Kilkenny the weekend prior to the robbery.

The two men involved are described as being of thin or medium build and 5 foot 8 inches and 5 foot 10 inches in height. They were wearing baseball caps, identical navy jackets and green wool gloves. The raiders are said to have spoken with eastern European accents.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact them at Clonmel garda station on 052 6177640, the Garda confidential cine on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
