GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for witnesses following a security van robbery in Clonee, Co Meath yesterday.

The incident happened at a supermarket at around 12.40pm as the security personnel were collecting cash.

As the security man left the supermarket he was approached by two masked men one of whom was armed with a hammer. The security man placed the cash box on the ground and the masked men grabbed it and ran off.

The raiders turned on to Main Street and took the next left into Clonee Court. It is believed that they had a vehicle waiting there, however, gardaí have no details of how they left the scene.

The raiders are described as being between 5’6″ and 5’8″ and were wearing black scarves on their faces.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone who was in the Clonee area between 12pm and 1pm to contact them. They are particularly seeking dash cam footage from any vehicles that travelled in the area at that time. Any one with information should contact Ashbourne Garda Station on 01 8010600.
