Paramilitary Crime Task Force search Ballymoney properties in North Antrim UDA investigation
Today, Friday, 26th March, officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF) searched at two properties in the Ballymoney area during which a number of items were seized. Detective Inspector Brennan said: “Today officers carried out a planned search of these properties in an operation targeting the suspected criminality linked to North Antrim UDA.
‘’North Antrim UDA bring nothing but misery and harm to their communities. They continue to use firearms indiscriminately to commit Human Rights breaches, intimidate and cause fear, putting a further strain on the NHS during a global pandemic.’’ “I would encourage anyone with information about any type of paramilitary organised criminality to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ . You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/ .”
The Police Service of Northern Ireland, HM Revenue & Customs and the National Crime Agency have established the Paramilitary Crime Task Force to tackle criminality linked to paramilitarism as part of the Executive’s action plan on tackling paramilitary activity, criminality and organised crime.
