Man arrested after operation in the Coleraine area

The 41-year-old was arrested under the Terrorism Act.

A man has been arrested following a search and arrest operation in the Coleraine area.

Detectives from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF) investigating the criminal activities of North Antrim UDA carried out the operation earlier today.

Detective Inspector Brennan said: “A 41 year old man was arrested under the Terrorism Act and is currently in police custody. 

“North Antrim UDA remain a priority for the PCTF due to the harm that they continue to cause to the local community.”

“Paramilitaries claim to protect local people but in reality they exploit them and use violence or the threat of violence to control and intimidate.”

“Working with our partners and communities we are committed to tackling the criminality of these groups.”
