Gardai in Navan investigating a cash in transit robbery that occurred on the Dublin Road yesterday are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

At approximately 15.09 yesterday a cash delivery van pulled into the forecourt of the Maxol service station, Dublin Road, Navan and parked beside the ATM machine.  

As one of the cash in transit workers was leaving the vehicle he was confronted and threatened by a lone male.

The male was dressed in black with his face covered by a balaclava and had his hood up.
 
The offender took a money box and got into a green Honda CRV Jeep, registration 01 SO 1627, which drove off on the Dublin road towards Navan town.

There was no one injured during the incident.
 
The Honda CRV was subsequently located burnt out in the Woodview Court area of Navan.

The empty money box was later found at the Bealing Walk area of Blanchardstown, Dublin.
 
Gardai wish to appeal for witnesses to this incident or to anyone who may have seen anything unusual or suspicious at the Service Station in Navan, at the Woodview Court area of Navan, at the Bealing Walk area of Blanchardstown, Dublin or the movement of this Honda CRV to contact Navan Garda Station on 046- 9036100, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
