GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED three men and a woman in connection as part of investigations into a raid on a cash-in-transit van in Dublin earlier this year.

The four arrested people, all in their 20s, were arrested in areas around Dublin this morning by Gardaí attached to Bridewell station, supported by the Organised Crime Unit.

The theft of the van occurred shortly after 8am at St Mary’s Place, just west of Parnell St in Dublin’s north inner city.

The van had stopped at traffic lights when a silver car pulled up alongside it and two men wearing balaclavas got out, armed with hammers, and smashed the windows of the van.

The struggle ensued between the two masked men and the van’s driver, who was its only occupant, with an undisclosed sum of money taken during the incident.

The four are being detained at Bridewell, Pearse St, Raheny and Mountjoy Garda Stations under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
