'Moobs' raider search goes on

Detectives are continuing their hunt for an armed raider with "huge moobs" and another man who carried out a robbery on a security cash van in Dublin.

A garda spokesman said last night the investigation was proceeding to trace the two men who escaped with a cashbox after confronting G4S van staff near the Balally Luas stop in Dundrum at around 3.30pm on Wednesday.

One of the raiders was described as very overweight with "huge man boobs".

A sum of over €15,000 worth of US dollars and sterling was stolen and was believed to have been destined for Balally Post Office in the local shopping centre.


One man had a handgun while the other brandished a knife. Officers said the fat raider had "huge moobs".

The thieves fled the scene in a grey VW Golf car which was abandoned at nearby Blackthorn Avenue in Sandyford. They then switched to a black Renault Megane and sped away.

The obese suspect was wearing a grey top and white tracksuit bottoms and his accomplice wore a dark grey tracksuit top.

Anyone with information should contact Dundrum gardai.

Recent figures from the Central Statistics Office show an 81pc rise in raids on cash vans.
