Gardai have arrested two men and a woman  following a robbery from a shop in Tullamore, Co. Offaly yesterday.

At approximately 9.25pm yesterday evening, two men entered a shop in Cappincur armed with a knife and a hammer. They threatened staff and left with a sum of money in a car with a third person. No one was injured.

The car then drove towards Dublin on the motorway. Three people were later arrested near Clonard, Co. Meath after ramming a Garda vehicle.

The three, all in their 20s, are currently detained under the provisions of Section 4 of The Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Tullamore Garda Station. Gardai recovered the property taken and the weapons used.
