It is understood the families of two executives of the bank, one in Loughinisland, County Down, the other in Dunmurry, near Belfast, were taken hostage on Sunday night.

It is thought the two officials went to work on Monday while their families were being held captive. They were released once the robbery was reported at about 2345 GMT on Monday.

Woah what a heist! I guess christmas has come early for those theives. I doubt they will ever be caught, I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't already in some spectacular country soaking up the sun right now.
I guess in a way I feel bad for the money that was taken and whether people get it back or not. However, I do love it when people get one over on the establishment.
