Three arrested following attempted robbery at Dublin post-office
4 Dec 2015
Three males have been arrested as part of Operation Thor following an attempted robbery at a post office in Dublin 8.
At approximately 12.30pm three masked men armed with knives, a crowbar and other implements entered the public area of a post office at Leonard’s Corner. They threatened customers and staff but failed in attempts to open a safe. The three men fled the scene on foot empty handed a short time later.
During a follow up operation involving Gardaí from Kevin St. along with Divisional Crime Task Force and Detective Units a flat was searched a short distance from the scene of the incident. Three males aged in their 20s were arrested. They are currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Kevin St. and Pearse St. Garda Stations.
Investigations are ongoing and further updates will follow.
