Man (30s) due in court over armed robbery of business premises in Dublin
The incident happened on Collinswood Avenue in Dublin 9 yesterday.

A MAN IS due to appear in court today following an armed robbery of a business in Dublin. 

At approximately 3.45pm yesterday afternoon, a lone male, armed with a weapon, entered the business premises on Collinswood Avenue in Dublin 9. He proceeded to threaten staff. 

He left the scene in a taxi with a number of items from the premises. 

In a follow up search, gardaí stopped a taxi on the Swords Road and the suspect attempted to make his escape on foot. 

Gardaí arrested a man, aged in his late 30s, and a number of items stolen from the premises were located. He was taken to Clontarf Garda Station where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. 

He has since been charged in relation to the robbery and is due to appear before a special sitting of the Criminal Courts of Justice at 10.30am today. 

Investigations are ongoing. 

Comments are closed as a person has been charged.
