Appeal for sightings of 'dark coloured Mercedes' after two armed robberies

A bookmakers and a shop were robbed within minutes of each other in north county Dublin earlier today.

AN APPEAL FOR information has been issued about two armed robberies in the space of half-an-hour in north county Dublin earlier today.

At around 11.25am, two males armed with a shotgun entered a bookmakers on Main Street in Lusk and threatened a female member of staff. They made off with a small amount of cash in a dark coloured Mercedes.

There were no shots fired and no injuries reported. The car is believed to have traveled out of Lusk village in the direction of the Rush roundabout.

Minutes later at around 11.40am, two armed and masked men entered a convenience store on Oldtown and threatened a female member of staff before leaving the scene with a small amount of cash and cigarettes.

The raiders fled the scene in a dark coloured Mercedes in the direction of Fieldstown Bridge towards Dublin. No shots were fired and there were no injuries.

Investigating gardaí are now appealing for any witnesses to the incidents or anyone who has seen a dark coloured Mercedes saloon car with  partial registration number 11-D in the north Dublin area between 11am and 12pm to contact them.

Gardaí can be reached at Balbriggan Garda Station 01 8020510 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
