THE Tesco store in Clane has been robbed for the second time in two weeks – again yielding a substantial amount of cash, writes Paul O’Meara.

Two males entered the store on Friday morning last between 6.15 and 6.25 and forced staff members into a rear office.

The staff were ordered to open a safe and the pair also stole a bag they filed with €1 coins.

Before leaving, the robbers used to cable ties to tie up two staff members.

The pair are believed to have left the area in a black-coloured car driven by a third accomplice.

One of the meet was 5 feet 9 inches in height and the second was six feet tall. One wore a fellow fluorescent vest with black clothing while the second had green clothing with blue shoe coverings and both wore balaclavas.

A substantial haul of cash was taken during a raid at the store on November 11.

Two males, wearing green boiler suits, gloves, black-coloured balaclavas and with plastic bags covering their feet, jumped the wall at the back of the premises at 8.30 pm.

Staff were forced into a back room and were also ordered to open the safe containing the cash.
