Three members of the Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) have had their passports seized by police in Rio as part of an investigation into illegal ticket touting.
The Irish Times reports that officers raided the officials' hotel rooms and took mobile phones, computers and tickets in the early hours of the morning.
The men, named by police sources as Kevin Kilty, Dermot Henihan and Stephen Martin, will have to remain in Rio until Tuesday for questioning.
It comes after the arrest and detention of Patrick Hickey - head of the European Olympic Committee and an International Olympic Committee (IOC) member - along with Kevin Mallon of hospitality firm THG Sports, which has also been implicated in the case.
Police are investigating an alleged scheme to pass OCI tickets to THG via the OCI's official ticket vendor Pro10, in a bid to get around Rio organisers' decision to reject THG's application to be the official vendor.
Mr Hickey, Pro10 and THG have all denied any wrongdoing.

He spoke of how difficult it is to be away from his children for so long - he has relocated to Portland in Oregon so that he can train with Alberto Salazar, long-distance running guru.
"Each one of my kids has one of these medals, so that's what drives me," he said. "If I stop today, at least they got something for the time I missed spending time with my kids."

She also described the moment she broke into tears as she stepped on the winner's podium to receive her gold medal.
"I don't normally cry, but I guess it must have just been the relief, and just thinking about all the hard work over the last four years."
Summing up Team GB's immense success at the Games, Adams said: "We did good in 2012, and we've improved in 2016. "
"There was a lot of people that doubted we would be able to achieve that but we've done it and shown we have some of the best athletes in the world," she added.
