Armed Raid in Nobber, Co. Meath on the 10/11/10

On Wednesday the 10th November a robbery took place at the Post Office on Main Street, Nobber, Co. Meath.

At 10.15am a security van delivering cash pulled up outside to the post office.  Minutes later a silver Peugeot Partner van drove up the main street from the Dublin direction.  The van made a U-turn in the main street and then parked behind the security van.

As the guard got out of the security van to make the cash delivery to the Post office, an armed raider followed him inside.  The armed raider forced the delivery man at gunpoint to leave the post office.  A second armed accomplice joined them.  This raider gestured for the delivery guard to put the cash box and his keys onto the ground.

The two armed men grabbed the cash box and jumped into the Peugeot van, making their getaway in the direction of Dublin.  A few hundred metres outside Nobber village, they took a right-hand turn towards Carlanstown.  They took another right-turn, and headed north towards Kilmainhamwood.  The raiders abandoned the van at Whitewood Lake where it is believed a silver-coloured saloon car was waiting.  They set the Peugeot Van on fire and then transferred to the silver saloon car to make their get away.

The getaway van used was a silver Peugeot Partner van.  It had been stolen at Larne, Northern Ireland in May and was fitted with false 09 LH plates at the time of the raid
