Cash in Transit Robbery in Castleknock, Dublin on the 17/1/14

Gardaí at Blanchardstown Garda Station are investigating a cash in transit robbery that occurred at a shopping centre in Castleknock on Friday the 17th January 2014.

The cash in transit driver had several collections to do at the shopping centre and arrived there shortly after 11am. Two men in a dark Ford Mondeo car, were parked in car park of the shopping centre. The cash in transit driver made his way back to his van with a collection in a box. One of the men in the Ford Mondeo got out. He was armed with a shotgun and his face was covered. He approached the driver and threatened him. He told the driver to drop the cash box. The armed man grabbed the cash box and fled to the waiting car. The raiders were unable to get out of the car park and fled the scene on foot. They ran through the car park and jumped over a wall into a field at the rear of the shopping centre.


• Gardaí are appealing to anyone who seen the black Ford Mondeo registration number 01D51043 on the morning of the robbery in the carpark. This car was purchased on the 4th January 2014. Gardaí are also appealing to anyone who has information on the movements of this car between these dates.

• Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have seen the two men leaving the scene on foot. They could have gone in the direction of Castleknock Park or onto Castleknock Road.
