Gardaí in Dublin investigating the robbery of a substantial quantity of cash from the crew of a security van have arrested four people.
The robbery took place on Thursday afternoon at the Nutgrove Shopping Centre in Rathfarnham in Dublin.
Two men, one of whom was believed to be armed, held up security company staff as they were about to fill ATM's at Nutgrove Shopping Centre in Rathfarnham in Dublin.

This morning Gardaí investigating the incident searched three houses in the Dublin 8 area.
During the course of the searches two handguns and a stolen van were recovered.
A total of four people have been arrested, three males one in his 20's, the other two in their 30's and a female in her 60's.
They have been detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against The State Act at Tallaght and Rathfarnham Garda Stations and may be held for up to 72 hours.
