MONTREAL - Security company GardaWorld is offering $100,000 to anyone with information about the latest in a string of attacks against its agents in Quebec.

Two masked men tied up two GardaWorld employees Thursday night at a Royal Bank of Canada branch in Montreal and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Thursday's theft was the fifth time in the past several months that Garda employees had been targeted while collecting money from financial institutions in the Montreal area.

In December thieves stole a Garda armoured vehicle parked outside a bank in Montreal while agents were inside the branch.

Earlier in 2014 a Garda agent shot and killed a suspect on Montreal's South Shore as he allegedly tried to steal money from a Garda vehicle.
