TWO MEN and a woman have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery on a cash-in-transit van at a petrol station in Dublin on Saturday.

The men, aged in their 40s and 20s, and the woman in her 20s were arrested after Gardaí searched a number of houses in south Dublin in a planned operation this afternoon.

A “large amount of cash” was recovered in the raids, as well as a firearm, Gardaí said.

The van was held up at around 4:15pm on Saturday afternoon at a filling station on Walkinstown Avenue, just off the Long Mile Road, when a lone masked raider – who was armed – approached an employee who had been collecting cash from the building.

The three arrested parties are being detained under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939, at Crumlin and Sundrive Road Garda stations.
