The attempted armed robbery took place at Slattery’s Garage on the Main Street of Drangan at around 7.30pm last night, (6th, March, 2015).
The individuals who wore balaclavas and were armed with a shotgun, threatened staff and demanded cash; however no one was injured and no cash was stolen. Staff were left very shaken following this incident.
The suspects quickly fled from the crime scene in a motor vehicle, turning in the direction of O’Connor’s public house and down the Newtown Road in the general direction of Glengarrig.
Both individuals are believed to be male and described as being about 5 feet-10 inches tall, wearing dark clothing and possibly aged in their early to mid 20s.
