The Gardaí at Lucan Garda Station are investigating the false imprisonment and robbery that occurred at Font Hill Retail Park on Tuesday the 11th December 2012.

On the night of the 11th December 2012 the manager of the store finished work and while driving into his housing estate a car reversed out in front of him. The manager beeped his horn at the car. A man came up to the side of the car door and pulled him out of the car and then a second man appeared.

The manager was then put in the back seat of his own car. One of the raiders sat in the back with him while the other raider drove. Both were armed with handguns. They made the manager put his head down so he couldn’t see them, and the raiders then told the manager that they had his family. The car the men had been in was a Ford Fiesta metallic red/wine.

They drove into the car park of the shop the man works in. They drove around to the rear of the store. The store was still open; it was open until 11pm. The raiders then forced the manager to phone the assistant manager and tell them to go to the back door and open up for him.

When the Assistant Manager opened the door the manager and two armed raiders met him. They got him to bring them straight to the cash room. They continued to hold the manager, assistant manager and another staff member there. They demanded the contents of the safe. The raiders managed to get the contents of the cash flow safe and also bags of coin.

An Audi was seen in the estate where the manager lives and also seen by a witness at the Liffey Valley estate. An Audi was seen speeding off from the Liffey Valley estate. Gardaí believe this was the same Audi, the getaway car.  This car was taken in a very violent aggravated burglary in Goatstown on Sat night into Sun morning the 8th/9th of December.
