RAID ON BAGENALSTOWN SUPERMARKET
Gardai at Bagenalstown in Co Carlow are appealing for information following a cash–in–transit robbery at the Aldi Supermarket yesterday.
At about 3pm, two men drove up to the entrance of the supermarket in a black BMW coupe car while a security van was making a collection.
One masked man armed with what was described as a firearm threatened a security guard and took a cash box containing a substantial amount of money before they drove off.
In a follow up search the cash box and its contents were discovered on the old Carlow Road in Bagenalstown.
The box had exploded on opening and destroyed the cash with red dye.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Bagenalstown Garda Station or any Garda Station.
