The company targeted in yesterday's tiger kidnapping in Dublin says it's assisting Gardai in the on-going investigation.

A mother and daughter were held hostage in a van after a gang of three entered their home in Artane.

The father, a cash-in-transit worker, was forced to deliver at least €200,000 to the gang.

GSLS say their primary concern at this time is for the well-being of the employee and his family.

In a statement, the company says it implements best in class procedures and training for its cash in transit operations, and has signed up to and abides by the Private Security Authority's code of practice for cash-in-transit firms.

No one has yet been arrested in connection with the incident.
