Gardaí have arrested two men in relation to a cash in transit robbery on Thomas Street last week.

Gardai investigating the robbery that occurred on December 15 arrested two men following a number of searches carried out this morning, December 22.

A search operation was carried out at three properties in the Dublin 8 area and one property in the Clondalkin area.

The searches were carried out by Gardaí from the DMR South Central Serious Crime Unit, and were assisted by Kevin Street and Kilmainham Gardaí.

Two men, aged in their 30s and late teens, have been arrested and are currently detained at Kevin Street Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

In a statement, Gardaí said they “would like to thank those who have already come forward, and are continuing to appeal to anyone with information who is yet to come forward to make contact.”

They are particularly appealing to motorists who were on Thomas Street or St. Kevin’s Avenue / New Street between 12:30pm and 2:30pm on Tuesday December 15 who may have video footage of the area to make available to investigators.
