Gardaí foil attempted robbery of cash-in-transit van in Dublin
Four people have been arrested after Gardaí found a shotgun and a sledgehammer in a car in Knocklyon.

FOUR PEOPLE HAVE been arrested after Gardaí foiled a planned robbery of a cash-in-transit van in Dublin.

Officers found a sawn-off shotgun and a sledgehammer after they intercepted and searched a car in Knocklyon on Dublin’s southside this afternoon.

Three men, two in their 20s and one in his 30s, were arrested at the scene. A woman in her 20s was also arrested as part of the operation.

Detectives from the Organised Crime Unit along with local Gardaí were involved in the search and arrest operation, which was part of an ongoing investigation into criminal gangs who have been targeting cash-in-transit vans.

The four people are currently being detained at Tallaght and Rathfarnham Garda stations.
