Gardai in Tallaght have arrested one man following a cash in transit robbery that occured on the Old Bawn Road, Tallaght at approximatley 1p.m. yesterday afternoon.

Three males, one armed with a shotgun, and another armed with a weapon confronted a security worker as he was making a cash collection. A third man remained in the car and they escaped with a sum of money in a silver avensis which went in the direction of Allenton Estate. The car was later recovered in Allenton. There were no injuries or shots discharged.
