Gardai probe possible link between Muff and Buncrana robberies

Gardai in Inishowen believe there may be a link between a robbery at a fashion store in Buncrana at quarter to four yesterday afternoon, and a similar incident in a chip shop in Muff on Monday night last.

In both instances, three people entered the premises, tied the hands of the woman behind the counter with cable ties and made off with an amount of cash.

In the Buncrana incident, the woman has told gardai she believes her attackers were foreign-nationals.

Gardai are examining CCTV footage, and are urging anyone with information to come forward.

Superintendent Kevin English told Highland Radio's Shaun Doherty Show that the Buncrana incident yesterday was very similar to what happened in Muff. he's been outlining how the Buncrana robbery unfolded:
