Grant Delays Force Students To Rob Cash-in-Transit Van At DCU

Gardaí are today investigating the robbery of a cash-in-transit van on the DCU campus.

The robbery happened this afternoon at around 1:45, when 2 men, apparently armed, held up one of the security men and proceeded to take the cash from him.

Grants

Gardaí have now begun an investigation and the current evidence suggests that the 2 men were in fact students, whose grants had been delayed and who were forced to rob the cash in order to survive. Evidence gathered at the scene, that pointed to student involvement, was a hot chicken role wrapper, an empty can of coke and a receipt from Dicey’s from Tuesday night.

USI president John Logue commented to reporters that:

This is a direct result from the government’s failure to commit to their agreements with the students and their poor handling of the processing of grants. Students are now being forced into crime to live and the worst is yet to come. Student’s will have to resort to more violent crime, drug trafficking, ponzai schemes, insider trading and predatory lending to make ends meet.

Dame Street

Gardaí investigating the Bank of Ireland Robbery on College Green, have today dismissed any suggestion that there may have been student involvement in that also and commented that:

Trinity students were not involved in today’s incident in Bank of Ireland. Bank robbery takes hard work and dedication and not pretentiousness and beliefs of self-entitlement, so we can safely rule that angle out and move on with our investigations.
