Appeal to public over robbery in Castlerea

Gardaí in Castlerea are seeking the public’s help as they continue to investigate the theft of a large sum of money from the Daybreak filling station in the town in the early hours of Monday morning.

It is understood the raiders had been lying in wait in the area for some time prior to the robbery, before gaining entry through a rear door and taking cash registers from the premises.

Gardaí believe three men were involved in the robbery and that they left on foot, making their way through St. Joseph’s Cemetery and across the local golf course in the direction of Ballindrimley.

They are appealing to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the Arm or Ballindrimley areas of the town between midnight and 8 am on Monday morning, or anyone with dash cam footage, to contact them at Castlerea Garda Station on 094-9621630.
