Two raiders wearing balaclavas and boiler-suits threatened staff and made off with the cash.


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.
