(BELFAST) PSNI REPORT: Operation Deal Breaker: The Police Service of Northern Ireland has revealed £1.25million worth of drugs has been taken off the streets in just one operation, on Friday evening #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.22: Working as part of the multi-agency Organised Crime Task Force, Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Organised Crime Unit, the local policing team and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), conducted this operation in Larne Port on Friday evening, 17 December.

#AceDailyNews PSNI Multi-Agency Organised Crime Task Force Report: Stopping a lorry in the Larne Harbour area just after 7pm yesterday evening. A large quantity of class A and class B controlled drugs were seized from the vehicle. The seizure consisted of thirty kilos of herbal cannabis, seven kilos of cocaine and five kilos of ketamine, with a combined street value of approximately £1.25 million.

A 59 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A and Class B controlled drugs with intent to supply. He remains in police custody at this time.

This proactive operation was conducted as part of the Police’s ongoing successful activity under ‘Operation Dealbreaker’ to take drugs off the streets of Northern Ireland.

Detective Inspector Conor Sweeney said:

” The criminals involved in the supply of drugs in Northern Ireland make money from the misery they inflict on the most vulnerable members of our society and they must be stopped. We are pleased that our proactive efforts have once again made a huge dent in potential profits from this trade.

“Our Organised Crime Unit, alongside our partner agencies, remains determined to halt the flow of such drugs into Northern Ireland and to dismantle the organised criminal groups responsible.

“Last week saw the conviction of a HGV driver in relation to a previous similar large scale attempt to smuggle drugs through Belfast Port. It may seem like a quick and easy way to make money, but anyone who is asked to get involved in this type of activity should stop and think about the devastating impact it could have on themselves, their families and the wider communities.”

The Police Service of Northern Ireland continues to appeal to anyone with information about illegal drug use or supply, to call them on the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, you can submit a report online using the Police’s non-emergency reporting form: http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/

crest-resized.jpg

Detective Superintendent Eamonn Corrigan said:

” Today our thoughts are very much with Brian’s two children, his mother, two sisters and his ex-partner.

“Daniel Carroll cruelly cut Brian Phelan’s life short on the 26th July 2018 when he stabbed him in the neck and then proceeded to chase him for a period of time. Whilst Brian sat mortally wounded on the ground, Carroll callously proceeded to rifle through his pockets and steal money from him, before the left the scene.

“Whilst lying wounded Brian had to phone police himself to ask for help. Unfortunately his life could not be saved and he died at the scene at Carrivekeeney Road, Newry.

Detective Superintendent Corrigan continued:

” Through the dedication of the investigating officers and working closely with our partners in the Public Prosecution Service, Daniel Carroll was found guilty of the murder of Brian Phelan and sentenced today.”

Detective Superintendent Corrigan concluded: “Daniel Carroll has robbed Brian’s two young children of their father, his mother of her son, his sisters of their brother and his ex-partner of the father of her children. There will be no more memories made together; no more birthdays celebrated. They have all been left bereft. Unfortunately Brian’s father never lived to see his killer brought to justice. This is a family who has suffered unimaginable grief.

“I know that today’s sentencing will not bring Brian back, however I hope that it brings some sort of comfort to his family, knowing that Daniel Carroll is now serving time in prison for taking Brian’s life.”

(BELFAST,N.I.) PSNI/HMRC Organised Crime Unit Report: Detectives working as part of the joint agency ‘Organised Crime Task Force’ conducted an operation in the Larne area in the early hours of this morning, Tuesday 30 November #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.04: A 23 year old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B controlled drug with intent to supply. He remains in police custody at this time.”

#AceDailyNews PSNI Operation DEALBREAKER Report: Over £1 million of suspected Cannabis seized: Multi-agency efforts of the Organised Crime Task Force, we will continue to carry out operations, to break the cycle of those who seek to cause harm through the illegal importation and supply of drugs in Northern Ireland, and to dismantle the organised criminals who profit from this incredibly harmful activity…..

Detective Inspector Conor Sweeney said:

” Detectives, working alongside Larne Local Policing Team and our colleagues from HMRC, stopped a lorry in the Larne Harbour area just after 1am this morning. A large quantity of suspected herbal cannabis, with an estimated street value in excess of £1 million, was seized from the vehicle during the proactive operation. The lorry and trailer have also been seized for further examination.

Detective Inspector Sweeney continued:

“This search, seizure and arrest was conducted as part of the multi-agency approach to target criminality within the haulage industry and our ongoing commitment to address the criminality linked to drug importation, supply and use that often results in drug debts, drug addiction and drug related deaths within our communities. In this year to date, we have seized over one metric tonne of herbal cannabis being brought into Northern Ireland by such method. This represents a street value of over £15 million. For anyone who thinks the illegal distribution of cannabis is not a big deal, just imagine for a second the damage an organised crime group could and would cause with £15 million worth of resources at their disposal. I have no doubt this was destined for the streets of Northern Ireland on the run up to Christmas with the potential for unimaginable harm and the funding of wider criminality.

“I appeal to anyone with information about illegal drug use or supply, to call police on the non-emergency number 101.  Alternatively, you can submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ . The independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/ .”

Crest.png

Detective Superintendent Eamonn Corrigan from Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Major Investigation Team said:

#Today my thoughts are very much with Lu Na’s children and her family whose suffering and loss will live with them for the rest of their lives.

Detective Superintendent Corrigan continued:

” On Wednesday, 12th April 2017 Stephen McKinney took his family on a boating trip on Lough Erne – Lu Na would never return alive. Her children would return without their mother.

“Following a ‘999’ call from Stephen McKinney stating his wife had fallen into the water and he could not find her, a thorough police investigation ensued.

“Through the dedication and tenacity of the investigating officers, along with the testimonies of expert witnesses who used ground breaking techniques, and working closely with our partners in the Public Prosecution Service, Stephen McKinney was found guilty of the murder of his wife and sentenced today.

“I know today’s sentencing will never bring Lu Na back, however I hope this outcome brings some sort of comfort to her family. 

“Stephen McKinney thought he had silenced Lu Na, he hadn’t – police spoke for her and found justice.” 

Detective Superintendent Corrigan went on to make a specific appeal to anyone who feels trapped in an abusive relationship: “Domestic abuse is a terrifying and impactful crime and very often people who are being abused feel isolated, vulnerable and frightened and don’t know where to turn.  Please know that help is available. You can contact us on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

“We are here to help you and we will robustly investigate all allegations of abuse and fully support you through the criminal justice process.  Please be assured that you can come forward in confidence and speak to detectives who will treat you with sensitivity and respect.

Statement issued on behalf of Lu Na’s family.

We would sincerely like to express our thanks to the judge, the jury, the PSNI major investigation team, the prosecution team and all those who assisted the police investigation and the subsequent court trial.

We appreciate the huge effort and hard work that has been undertaken by many, many people which has contributed to the successful conviction of Stephen McKinney for the murder of our much-loved Lu Na.

As a family, we have endured four very difficult years, made more difficult living so far away from the investigation and trial. We are thankful that Lu Na had so many people fighting for her. We appreciate the dedication that was shown by the investigation team who worked on this case and provided our family with detailed updates as the case progressed.

The outcome of this court process has brought us some justice, it does not change the fact that Lu Na was so cruelly taken from us and we will never be able to see her, talk to her or for Lu Na to be part of our family celebrations. We will never get over our loss. We all love Lu Na and will miss her forever.

“And we are not the only organisation that can help. Women’s Aid; Rainbow Project, Men’s Advisory Project, Men’s Alliance and other support services also offer a wide range of help and advice – You can find more information online at: https://www.psni.police.uk/crime/domestic-abuse/who-can-help-me/

PSNI REPORT:

Detective Inspector Corrigan said: “Cannabis plants worth an estimated street value of £320,000 were seized at this property in 2019: Some people think that cannabis is harmless – this is simply not true. Like other illegal drugs, it can damage both physical and mental health, causing harm and hurt to individuals and their loved ones.

Our enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone with information to contact us on 101, quoting reference number 899 of 09/10/19: Alternatively, information can be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”

(BELFAST, N.I.) Royal Courts Of Appeal Justice Report: Following an appeal by 57 year old Francis Lanigan against his conviction and sentencing for the murder of John Knocker today the court upheld his original conviction and sentencing #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.02: Following an appeal by 57 year old Francis Lanigan against his conviction and sentencing for the murder of John Knocker which occurred on 31 May 1998, today, Tuesday 31st August 2021, at the Royal Courts of Justice, Belfast the Court of Appeal upheld his original conviction and sentencing. He was previously sentenced to a minimum term of 20 years imprisonment….

#AceDailyNews UPDATE: On the sentencing for the murder of John Knocker in 1998 of Francis Lanigan against his original conviction which was upheld in Royal Court of Justices …..

PSNI REPORT:

Detective Superintendent Gareth Talbot said: “John’s family and friends were able to observe today’s proceedings remotely and I would like to say that my thoughts and those of the investigation team are very much with them at what has been an extremely difficult time: John was murdered following an altercation with Francis Lanigan in the carpark of Glengannon hotel in Dungannon. Following this altercation, as John was fleeing along Eglish Road, Francis Lanigan raised a gun and callously shot him from a distance. He fell to the ground wounded and as he lay helpless and vulnerable on the ground Francis Lanigan walked up to him and coldly shot him a second time in the head, killing him.”

Detective Superintendent Talbot continues: “John was a young man of 22 when his life was ruthlessly cut short. He had a young son and was awaiting the birth of his second child: John and his son were denied the joy of building memories together. He never got to see the birth of his daughter and she will never have the joy of her father walking her down the aisle. Francis Lanigan’s actions have taken so much from his children and his family: Although this callous and brutal murder occurred 23 years ago and Francis Lanigan fled the jurisdiction to the Republic of Ireland, officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland worked tirelessly to bring him back to Northern Ireland to face justice for what he had done: He believed he could evade justice – he was wrong.”

Detective Superintendent Talbot concludes: “I would like to place on record my thanks to the family and friends of John Knocker who have supported the police investigation down through the years: I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the investigation team for their efforts and painstaking work which enabled us to bring Francis Lanigan before the courts: Today’s judgment won’t bring John back to his family, however I hope it will bring some small degree of comfort to them knowing that Francis Lanigan is in prison, paying the price for taking the life of their father, son and brother.”

Statement issued on behalf of Mary Knocker, mother of John Knocker: Today, Francis Lanigan’s conviction and sentence for the brutal and senseless murder of my beloved son, John was upheld by the Court of Appeal. However, no matter how many years he has to serve in prison it will not make up for the life and memories that both John and all of his family have missed out on and will continue to miss: John was my first born and my only son. He was the light of my life. His murder rocked our family to the core and left a huge void in our lives which will remain for as long as we all live: His younger sisters and I have had to live with the heartache of never being able to feel his arms hugging us or hearing his laughter. Family gatherings and holidays have never been the same without him. All of our memories are missing one vital person – John.

John had a young son whom he adored: He was looking forward to the birth of his second child. He had his whole life ahead of him. However, Francis Lanigan robbed both him and his children of the chance to make beautiful and life changing memories: John never got to meet his daughter as his life was cruelly cut short before she was born. He never had the chance to look into her eyes or hear her voice and she never got to meet her father: We have all been denied so much by the cruel and senseless act of one person: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the police, our legal team and not least of all my family and friends, whose help and support we all truly appreciate.
