MEN ARRESTED IN DERRY OVER TERRORISM AND ORGANISED CRIME, SAY POLICE
DETECTIVES arrested two men in Derry this morning as part of a PSNI investigation into offences linked to terrorism and organised crime in the city.
The suspects – aged 34 and 44 – were detained under section 41 of the Terrorism Act.
Their arrests were, say police, part of a number of “planned searches” in the Ballymagroarty and Galliagh areas of the city.
Detective Inspector Tom McClure, from the PSNI’s Reactive and Organised Crime Branch, said: “A number of items have been removed for examination.
“The men have been taken to Musgrave Police Station in Belfast for questioning.”
