GARDAÍ ARE SEEKING a man who committed an armed robbery at a local store in south Dublin.

The robbery, understood to have taken place at a Centra store on the Johnstown Road in Cabinteely, happened at roughly 9pm on Sunday evening.

A lone man walked into the store brandishing a handgun and demanded the cash contained in the till from staff.

He subsequently escaped with “a small amount of cash” according to gardaí.

It’s understood that the same man is wanted in connection with at least two other similar robberies committed in the south of the city over the last two months.

No-one has been arrested at this stage, although it’s believed a number of accomplices may have been involved outside the store.

The investigation is ongoing according to gardaí.
