3 appear in court following robbery in Dunlavin

The scene where the raiders crashed their getaway car at Plezica close to Dunlavin.

Gardaí from Baltinglass arrested four males and recovered a firearm following a burglary at a house in Dunlavin, Co. Wicklow, on the 28th July 2014.

Shortly before 2pm yesterday afternoon (28/7/2014), Gardaí received a report of a burglary at a house in Dunlavin. The owner of the house returned following an alarm activation and disturbed a number of intruders who fled the scene.  During a follow up operation Gardaí assisted by the Air Support Unit arrested four males a short distance away. A shotgun and a small amount of cash taken during the incident was recovered. The four males (aged in their late teens and early 20’s) were taken to Bray Garda Station where they were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

Three of the males are expected to appear before a sitting of Tallaght District Court this morning (29/7/2014) charged in connection with the incident. The fourth male was released yesterday evening and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
