Gardaí are investigating an armed cash-in-transit robbery in County Dublin this afternoon.

The robbery took place as a security guard was attempting to make a cash delivery to a bank on Main Street in Lucan this morning.

Gardaí said a man armed with a handgun approached the security guard at around 12:20pm and forced him to hand over a cashbox.

The man made his getaway in a silver or grey Volkswagen Golf with the partial registration 04-WH.

The car was found on fire 20 minutes later at River Forest Estate in Leixlip.

Investigators said the car had been driven onto a green area behind San Carlo Senior National School before it was set alight.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.

  • Main Street, Lucan, Co Dublin between 12pm and 12.30pm
  • River Forest Estate, Captains Hill Co Dublin between 12.30pm and 1pm
