Garda Appeal For Information Following Bank Robbery In Co Roscommon

Gardaí have issued an appeal for witnesses following a bank robbery in Strokestown, Co Roscommon.

Four men wearing balaclavas and gloves entered a bank on Church Street at about 2.15pm on Saturday, 21 April.

One of the men was believed to have been armed with a handgun.

The men threatened bank staff and demanded cash. They fled the scene with an undisclosed sum of money in a black Audi A4 with UK registered number plates, which was driven by a fifth man.

It is believed the group drove up Elphin Street, took a right turn and drove in the direction of Kilmore.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and information from anybody who may have seen anything suspicious or to any drivers who may have dash cams fitted to their vehicles to contact Castlerea Garda Station on 094-9621637, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any garda station.
