Two arrested after armed robbery on Co Waterford post office

Post office staff were threatened by men armed with a gun and a hammer during this morning’s robbery, according to gardaí.

TWO MEN HAVE been arrested in Co Waterford following the robbery of a post office in Lismore this morning.

At around 10am today, two men armed with a gun and a hammer entered the post office and threatened staff before taking a ‘cash bag’ from the premises.

No injuries have been reported.

Two men aged in their 20s and 30s were arrested in a follow-up operation by gardaí in the Dungarvan area. They are both being held under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 at Dungarvan Garda Station.

Gardaí say that at this point it appears that the ‘cash bag’ contained documents only, and no cash.
