GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN have arrested and charged a man following a robbery and attempted robbery at convenience stores in Tallaght yesterday.
Shortly before 8am on Friday, the guards were alerted following reports of a robbery at a convenience store at a service station in the Jobstown area of Tallaght.
A man entered the stop and threatened a staff member at knife point before leaving with a sum of cash. It’s understood a man armed with a knife had entered another nearby convenience store moments earlier and threatened staff before leaving empty handed.

In a follow-up operation, the guards later searched a house in the Tallaght area and arrested a man aged in the late 20s.
He was detained for questioning in relation to both incidents at Tallaght Garda Station under section four of the 1984 Criminal Justice Act.
