Three men have been arrested and bailed in connection with an armed robbery at a Dronfield house in which a family were tied up and threatened with a gun.

The robbery occured at a house on Stubley Lane at 8pm on March 19.

A quantity of cash and jewellery was stolen from the address before the offenders were disturbed by a caller.

Two men, aged 33 and 35, were arrested on Sunday March 29 and a further man, aged 35, was arrested yesterday (Monday) on suspicion of robbery.

All have been released on police bail pending further investigations.
