Gardai in Tallaght release description of armed man who remains on the run

A description of the man, believed to be armed and on the run in the Tallaght area, has been released by Gardai as the search continues across the area.

The type of vehicle he is believed to be driving has also been released.

In a statement from Gardai this morning, a spokesperson said: “Gardai are trying to locate a black Renault Kadjar registered number 162 D 8767.

“The driver of this car is believed to be armed and is described as a white male, medium build, wearing grey shorts, a green and black Northface jacket and grey and navy runners.”

The search began for the man before 7am this morning, and has included air support, the Armed Response Unit and several other local Garda units.

It is believed the man was involved in a domestic dispute, and has since stolen a number of vehicles.
