A gang of raiders has been caught red-handed after robbing a shop and a cafe in a north Dublin crime-spree.

They first struck in the SuperValu store in Lusk where they escaped with around €500 in cash at 5.45pm.

Witnesses saw the gang escape towards Blakes Cross in a black BMW car but gardai believed the raiders doubled-back and headed for Skerries where the Seasons cafe was robbed and around €500 taken.

Gardai who had responded to the first alarm were alerted to the second raid and then stopped a BMW on the Selskar Road and arrested four men.

When the car was searched a large quantity of cash in notes and coins was found, as well as a number of mobile phones.

Two of the men were later released without charge while the other two were detained in Swords garda station.

These two men (aged 26 and 29) were expected to appear before Swords District Court this morning charged in connection with the two robberies.
