Cash-in-transit Robbery, Crumlin, Dublin 12, on the 11/2/21

Gardaí in Crumlin are investigating a cash-in-transit robbery that took place at a post office on St. Agnes Road on the 11 February 2021.

On the date in question at approximately 11.45am a security guard was making a cash delivery to the post office. He was in the process of delivering the second cash box when a man dressed in a green An Post jacket followed the guard into the post office and a gun was produced. The gun was pointed at the security guard and a demand was made that he “Drop the box”. The cash box and the security guard’s phone was then taken before the suspect ran out of the post office. He ran to a bicycle which he had earlier locked to a fence located to protect a tree. The suspect made his escape via Windmill Rd in the direction of Kildare Road, Crumlin with the cash box balanced on the handle bars of the bike.

Gardaí also believe that another man who was in the area at the time was also involved in the robbery by acting as lookout. This man was wearing a grey tracksuit, was also on a bike and left in the same direction as the main suspect following the robbery.
