Tipperary Garda Car Rammed Following Tipp Robbery

GardaGardaí in Tipperary Town are today hunting for a four-man gang, following a series of attempted robberies during  last night.

The Centra Supermarket at Main Street, Dundrum, was targeted at around 4 o’clock. This followed an earlier robbery in Doon, Co Limerick.

Gardaí disturbed the balaclava clad gang, as they attempted one of these burglaries. The criminal gang then attacked the Garda patrol car with an assortment of weapons before fleeing the scene in a blueish or purple Ford Focus bearing the possible registration number 08 KK 1010 or 11.

The Gardaí then pursued the vehicle in the direction of Thurles, before being rammed and disabled near Rossmore, Co.Tipperary.

Police are now anxious to obtain any information regarding the movements of this vehicle and its occupants.

Information please to Tipperary Gardaí on 062 80670 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.
