Fine Wines, Corbally: Gardai are investigating a robbery in which staff were threatened

GARDAI in Limerick are appealing for information after a robbery at an off-licence in which staff were threatened with a weapon.

Last Saturday evening, December 9, at 6pm, two males entered Fine Wines in Corbally, threatening staff with a wheel brace.

The assailants forced a staff member to open the till and made off with cash.

“This Fine Wines is situated in a busy area. There’s a chemist, a hairdresser’s, a butcher’s and a garage next to it,” explained divisional crime prevention officer Ber Leetch.

Gardai are hoping that somebody was walking or driving by, and perhaps noticed something unusual.
