Arrests follow chemist robbery

by Gazette Reporter

TWO men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a pharmacy in Portmarnock.

Gardai made the arrests following the robbery on March 4. At around 8.30pm, two staff members closing the pharmacy on Strand Road, Portmarnock were approached by two males holding what are believed to be handguns.

The culprits threatened the staff members and a scuffle ensued, resulting in one staff member receiving minor injuries.

The culprits left the scene with a watch from one of the staff members. They fled in a dark-coloured car, that was later recovered at Red Arches, Baldoyle by local gardai. Two males, aged 22 and 23 years, were arrested close by.

Anyone with information should contact Malahide Garda Station at 01 666 4600.
