GARDAI are hunting a tiger kidnap gang who held a postmistress and her husband overnight in their home before making off with under €10,000.
The gang forced their way into the couple’s home in Oldcastle, Co Meath, last night and kept them captive until this morning.
Some of the raiders then brought the terrified woman to her post office nearby and waited until the timelocked safe could be opened.
After snatching the cash, they brought the postmistress away with them.
But she and her husband were released unharmed shortly afterwards.
