ARMED raiders took three people hostage during an incident in Co Cavan overnight.
Three to four men, two believed to be armed, called to a house at Leehary, Crosserlough, Ballyjamesduff at around 1.45am this morning.
The men demanded the alarm codes and keys to a shop which is owned by the occupants of the house.
Three of the occupants were put into a vehicle and taken to a local quarry where they were left for some time.
By the time they managed to raise the alarm and contact gardai, the shop had been entered and an undisclosed amount of cash had been taken.
Gardai are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
