Dublin’s “Bonnie and Clyde” nabbed by gardai

A ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ couple suspected of robbing more than 15 shops in Dublin have been nabbed by gardai.

The pair were arrested following a planned operation into recent robberies in the Blanchardstown area.  

A gardai spokesperson said: “Gardai investigating the robbery of three shops in the Blanchardstown area over the past two weeks during which knives were produced have arrested one male and two females last night as part of a planned operation.”

The raiders, who recently stuck Benny’s takeaway on Dorest Street twice in six days, were dubbed ‘Bonnie and Cylde’ after the famous US outlaws.

It is understood that they rammed a garda car before being overpowered by armed officers.

Gardai said that a third person was also arrested outside a Spar shop in Clonsilla during the operation.
