Dublin police recovered millions in stolen cash and interrogated seven suspected robbers Saturday, a day after a gang took a bank employee's family hostage and forced him to rob his own branch.
Police said that shortly before midnight on Friday they raided a house in the inner north Dublin district of Phibsborough and stopped a car on a highway ringing Dublin. A third of the stolen money has been recovered.
On Friday, six armed, masked men stormed into the rural home of Bank of Ireland worker Shane Travers.
They tied up his partner, her 5-year-old son and her mother, and told Travers they would be killed unless he cooperated.
