Gardaí have arrested two people in relation to a robbery at a pharmacy in Cork city on Saturday.

Shortly before 10pm, gardaí received a report of a robbery that had just occurred where a man had entered a pharmacy in Douglas, threatened staff with what is believed to be a knife, and had stolen prescription tablets.

Gardaí from Douglas and the Armed Support Unit attended the scene, but a suspect was not located at the time.

Detective gardaí from Togher began investigating and gathered CCTV from the area.

As a result, gardaí executed a search warrant at a house in Cork city where they arrested a man (30s) and a woman (20s).

A quantity of tablets believed to have been stolen during the robbery were also recovered. The two people were brought to Togher and Bridewell Garda Stations where they were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.


The man has since been charged and is due to appear before Cork City District Court this morning at 10.30am. The woman has been released without charge and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
