Gar­daí may have re­trieved get­away car

Bray People - - News -

A VE­HI­CLE be­lieved to be the get­away car used by a gang of raiders who held Min­is­ter Roche and staff of the Mar­riott hostage at the ho­tel on Mon­day morn­ing has been found in Kil­coole in­dus­trial es­tate.

Gar­daí are ex­am­in­ing the car on site and it will un­dergo a full foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion.

They are ap­peal­ing to peo­ple who may have seen the black Volvo driven in to the in­dus­trial es­tate, and the driver and pas­sen­gers trans­fer to a grey or sil­ver Golf.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Michael Lerni­han also ap­pealed to peo­ple with CCTV in the area to have an­other look at their tapes at around 10 a.m. on Mon­day morn­ing.

‘The car would also have to have been placed there be­fore the in­ci­dent took place,’ said Supt. Lerni­han. He said that there are three di­rec­tions the car could have taken, namely back to the scene of the crime, to­wards Kil­coole Vil­lage or to­wards New­cas­tle.

‘Even the small­est de­tail that you might not think sig­nif­i­cant could be hugely help­ful to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion,’ said Garda De­clan Lynch. Gar­daí can be con­tacted in re­la­tion to the hold-up on (01) 6665300.
