Cash in transit van driver 'approached by man wearing balaclava with his hood up' during robbery
Gardaí have appealed for witnesses after a cash in transit van was held up and a money box stolen yesterday.
The incident occurred at a Maxol service station on the Dublin road in Navan yesterday afternoon.
A cash delivery van pulled up to the ATM in the forecourt of the station just after 3pm in the afternoon.
One of the drivers got out of the vehicle and was approached by a lone man wearing a balaclava with his hood up. The man threatened the driver and escaped with a money box from the van.
No one was injured in the incident.
The man took off in a green Honda CRV Jeep, registration 01 SO 1627, which drove off on the Dublin road towards Navan town.
The vehicle was discovered later by Gardaí burnt out in the Woodview Court area of Navan. The empty money box was later found at the Bealing Walk area of Blanchardstown, Dublin.
Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident. They are also looking for anyone who may have seen anything unusual or suspicious at the service station in Navan, at the Woodview Court area of Navan or at the Bealing Walk area of Blanchardstown.
Anyone who may have seen the movement of the Honda CRV is also asked to come forward.
