Gardaí are searching for a man who was involved in the robbery in Crumlin Village, Count Dublin, yesterday morning at around 11.40am, who escaped with €50,000 in cash.

According to The Irish Independent, the suspect was dressed in an An Post uniform and was carrying a firearm.

He approached a cash-in-transit employee outside of the Crumlin post office and produced the firearm, forcing the employee to hand over the box containing €50,000.

The unidentified suspect then escaped on a bicycle down Windmill Road in the direction of the Kildare Road.
