HC Deb 12 June 1913 vol 53 cc1797-8W
Captain CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary whether he has been informed of a highway robbery committed on the manager of the Provincial Bank, Listowel, on the 1st June; whether the manager and an assistant were held up on the public road, near Abbeyfeale, by four masked and armed men and compelled to hand over all the money of the bank which the manager was conveying to a branch office; and whether this outrage was committed on the public road about ten o'clock in the morning?


The police inform me that about half-past ten on the morning of the 2nd instant the manager of the Provincial Bank at Listowel and his assistant, when driving to Abbeyfeale to open a branch office for the day, were stopped by armed men, who compelled them to hand over the cash in their possession. Six men have been arrested in connection with the case and are now on remand in custody.
