The Gardaí at Mountjoy Garda Station are investigating a cash in transit robbery that occurred on Friday 14th December 2018 at approximately 2.20pm.

The cash in transit security van was making a collection and a delivery to a supermarket on Slaney Road, Glasnevin, Dublin 11.

Approximately forty five minutes earlier a white ford transit connect van entered the car park and drove around it a couple of times before parking in a space close to the main door. The security van entered the car park a short time later and parked close to the main door to make a delivery. As the security guard was making his delivery, a man armed with a gun ran from the white connect van, he told the security guard to drop the box which he grabbed and ran back towards the connect van.

The van turned right out of the supermarket onto Slaney Road and continued onto Lagan Road where it abandoned the van in a cul de sac. One of the men grabbed the cash box and ran down steps leading to the old Finglas Road followed shortly by the second man who has set the van on fire. The two men crossed the Ballyboggan Road and into Glasnevin Woods estate.

Appeal:

  • Gardaí are seeking witnesses who may have seen the white Ford Transit Connect prior to the incident and in the run up to that date. This van was sold on the 7th November 2018 at west Dublin.

  • Any witnesses who saw the suspects in Glasnevin Woods / Tolka Valley Park (or other nearby areas at the time).

Gardaí from the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau were in studio to offer advice to the public on how to prevent becoming a Money Mule, which is a term given to people who help criminals launder cash gained from criminal activities by using their own personal bank accounts to “clean” the money.

A large sum of money is usually deposited which is then deposited into several different criminal accounts. The vast majority of people targeted are young, particularly men aged between 18-25, who may answer an advertisement for work through social media and are often unaware that they are teaming up with criminals and committing an offence and may be prosecuted. Criminals use the internet as an easy way to recruit money mules. They use popular social media sites to advertise and attract potential mules, they request people’s bank details in exchange for a sum of money. These messages are often disguised as a job.

On this month’s Crimecall Garda Derek Cloughley was in studio to discuss the non-use of safety belts and the use of mobile phones by motorists. At least 1 in 5 vehicular fatalities were not wearing a safety belt at the time of the collision and this figure may rise as investigations progress. The outcomes in some of these collisions could have been so different. During 2018, detections for non-use of safety belts rose by 5% compared to 2017 (approximately 11,500).

Mobile phone detections rose by 9% in 2018 compared to 2017 and remains the second highest detected offence by AGS (approximately 31,000).
