AN ARMED ROBBERY of a cash-in-transit van took place outside a supermarket in west Dublin this afternoon.

The incident occurred at around 12.45pm this afternoon outside the supermarket at Carpenterstown in Dublin 15.

Two men, one of whom was believed to have been armed with a handgun, approached one of the CIT van staff members and took a cash box with an undisclosed amount inside it.

No shots were fired and there were no injuries in the incident.

The two suspects then made their getaway in a silver Volkswagen Golf which gardaí say is possibly a 1999 model.

Anyone who may have any information about the incident has been asked to contact gardaí at Blanchardstown 0n 01 666 7000 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
