Gardaí in Meath on hunt for thief who robbed cash-in-transit van at gunpoint

Gardaí in Dublin and Meath are searching for a man who robbed a cash-in-transit van at gunpoint yesterday.

The raid happened shortly after 10am yesterday morning outside Littlepace Shopping Centre - when a man carrying a handgun threatened the van's driver before making off with a cash box.

He escaped in a wine-coloured Toyota Avensis with 99 D registration plates.

The car was later found burnt out in Dunboyne, Co Meath.

Local Councillor David McGuinness said local gardaí do not have enough resources to tackle serious crime.
