GARDAI HAVE ARRESTED a man in connection with a tiger kidnapping in Tallaght last June.

A male bank official and another man were abducted from a house in Deerpark, Kiltipper on in the early hours of the morning on 22 June 2010. Three men, two of which were armed, demanded that the bank worker obtain a sum of money from AIB, Crumlin Cross, Dublin 12 and go on to a specific location near the Red Cow roundabout at noon to hand over the cash.

The second man was taken from the house in Deerpark and released 12 hours later in Portmarnock, after which he sought assistance from Gardaí in Coolock.

Gardaí in Tallaght arrested a man in his thirties this morning in relation to the incident. He’s the second person to be charged in connection with the tiger kidnapping.
