Wednesday, March 31


Detective Gardaí have arrested three men in relation to an attempted robbery of a cash-in-transit van that took place in Co Limerick in January.

Two men in their 40s and one in his 30s are currently detained at Henry Street and Roxboro Road Garda Stations under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2007. 

The attempted robbery took place at a retail premises at Annacotty in County Limerick on Friday afternoon, 15th January.

The incident occurred shortly after 1.50pm when a car pulled up beside the cash-in-transit van. 

A masked man exited the passenger’s seat of this car and came towards the van.

This man proceeded to assault the cash-in-transit employee with an implement. 

The driver of the car, who was also a masked male, is alleged to have made threats to the employee during the assault.

The men then fled the location soon after in their car and no cash was taken.
