Gardai have launched a search for three men suspected of carrying out a cash-in-transit robbery this morning in Co Westmeath.

The incident occurred at 10.20am outside a financial institution in the rural town of Kinnegad.

It is understood that three males in a gold coloured Renault Scenic car took a cash box from a security man at the premises. 

This car was later found burnt out a short distance away in the Ballinabrackey Road area of Kinnegad where it is believed another car was waiting to take the occupants away.

Gardai in Mullingar are appealing for information from anyone who may have witnessed anything unusual in the Kinnegad town area, or in the Ballinabrackey Road area of Kinnegad, this morning between 9am and 11am. 

They are particularly appealing to those with dash-cam footage who were in the Kinnegad area at the time of the raid to come forward.

Anyone with information can contact Mullingar Garda Station on 044 9384000 , the Garda Confidential Line on 1800666111 or any Garda Station.
