Four people held after Armagh robbery

Published 21/05/2010

Police were last night questioning four people in relation to an armed robbery in Co Armagh yesterday.

The three men and one woman were arrested a short time after the theft which occurred at around 2.15pm in Tandragee.

Two men, one armed with a hand gun and the other a hammer, entered the store in the Market Street area of the town and smashed a glass cabinet.

The duo removed a number of gold rings. They also stole jewellery from a safe before fleeing in a grey Audi A4 in the direction of Scarva.

Police believe the car, which was found burnt out, had been hijacked from a dealership in Mallusk on Wednesday.

A PSNI spokeswoman said last night the four people arrested were assisting police with their inquiries.

She also said police were keen to speak to anyone who noticed a red Corsa or silver BMW in the Scarva or Tandragee areas yesterday, as well as anyone who may have any information about the car hijacking.
