GARDAÍ ARE TRYING to track down two men who carried out an armed robbery of a cash-in-transit van in the Blanchardstown area of Dublin at the weekend.

It happened in the car park of Blanchardstown Shopping Centre at around 12.30pm on Sunday, a garda spokesperson said.

Two raiders wearing blue boiler-suits and balaclavas approached the van and threatened staff. At least one of them had a handgun.

They then made off with a large amount of cash.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 666 7000.

It’s understood the van had just serviced an ATM at the centre.
