Gardai in Co Kildare have arrested three men in connection with an aggravated burglary at a hotel within the town yesterday morning.
It is understood that four masked raiders entered the hotel at around 5am this morning they tied up two members of staff and caused a serious amount of damage to the reception area and hotel offices. Gardai say the raiders were armed with hammers. A large amount of cash was also taken during the incident. The assailants then made their escape shortly after 7am in a red Peugeot 206 which was stolen from the hotel car park.
It is thought that the assailants then set fire to a car believed to have been used in the incident on the M7 motorway near the Goffs exit. Gardaí later arrested the three men, aged 28, 40 and 41 in Kill. They’re are currently being detained at Naas Garda station.
Gardai are appealing for witnesses who saw anything at the hotel or near the burned out car, to contact them.
