GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are investigating the armed robbery of a cash-in-transit van in Killiney today.

Just before 10am this morning, a lone male approached the van at Killiney Shopping Centre. The man who was armed with what is believed to be a handgun threatened the cash-in-transit employee and demanded the cash box.

He made off with the cash box which contained an undisclosed sum of money. The man escaped in a red Peugeot van, with the registration 97 WX 1591, driving in the direction of Blackrock on Rochestown Avenue.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to this robbery, in particular about the movements of this van before and after the robbery. The van was parked in the public car park at the back of Euro Spar, Killiney Shopping Centre prior to the robbery.

The van then travelled onto Rochestown Ave then Rochestown Park and was found abandoned in the church carpark in Sallynoggin a short time later. This van is described as having water dripping from the doors at the rear.

Anyone with information or who can assist the gardí with their investigation is asked to contact Cabinteely Garda Station on 01-6665400, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
