Gardaí appeal for witnesses to cash-in-transit robbery

Gardaí are particularly interested in a car which was found burnt out near Dunboyne.

GARDAÍ IN BLANCHARDSTOWN are seeking witnesses to an armed robbery on a cash-in-transit van.

The incident occurred just after 10.10am today at the Little Pace Shopping Centre in Clonee.

A lone male armed with a hand gun approached and threatened a cash-in-transit employee at the ATM facility at the shopping centre, which is just yards from a school and just downstairs from a crèche.

The man fled the scene with a cash box containing an undisclosed sum of money in a wine coloured Toyota Avensis, registration 99-D-42649.

The car, which is believed to have travelled in the direction of Clonee and Dunboyne, was later found set alight on the Summerhill road near Dunboyne.

There was no shots fired and no one injured during the robbery.

Investigating Gardai are appealing for witnesses and in particular any sightings of the car before and after the robbery.

They are also appealing for information on the raider who is described as approximately 5′ 8” in height and of thin build.

He was wearing a blue hooded top and black bottoms with a scarf and hood covering his face and head.

Anyone with information or who can assist the gardaí with their investigation is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda station on 01-6667000, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
