(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Ending Harm Campaign: Caused by illegal money lenders has recently been launched as part of tackling Paramilitarism and gangs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.16: The Police Service of Northern Ireland is supporting the ‘Ending the Harm’ campaign launched today which aims to raise awareness of the devastating impact that illegal money lenders have on the wider community.

The “Ending the Harm” campaign, which is part of the Tackling Paramilitarism Programme, is aimed at highlighting the harm caused by paramilitary gangs, directly addressing the ‘societal shrug’ towards some paramilitary gang practices and this campaign represents another iteration of that.

crest-centred.png

Speaking at today’s launch Assistant Chief Constable Bobby Singleton said: “This campaign highlights the devastating impact that illegal money lenders have, not only on victims, but their families, the local community and wider society: The people who purport to be helping people by offering them loans when they feel they have nowhere else to turn are not doing it for nothing. They will always want something in return – and I don’t just mean a hefty interest rate. In the long run they will want more than their money back. They will charge you exorbitant interest rates and set unrealistic pay back targets. They will tell you that you are in their debt forever, they will threaten you and coerce you into getting involved in their criminal world, for example, they may tell you that you have to peddle their drugs for them, or ‘handle’ criminal property: My message is simple. Policing works for communities, particularly for those communities that engage and work with us. We are targeting the groups and individuals we suspect are responsible for exploiting the most vulnerable in our community: There are obvious difficulties in getting victims of illegal money lenders to come forward due to fear but the Police are far from powerless when it comes to dealing with these people who are exploiting their own communities: Ultimately we all have a role to play in creating a safer society and ending the harm caused by these criminals.

“If you are in debt and feel you have nowhere to go please know that there is independent help available, Advice NI, which is an independent charity, offers confidential advice to anyone who finds themselves in this situation. For totally independent advice you can contact Advice NI on 0800 915 4604.”

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI SCAM ALERT REPORT: Police are urging people across the country to be extra vigilant following a spate of scams reported recently resulting in the case of a loss of over £30,000 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.05: Over the past few weeks, police have received a number of reports of different scams. One victim was contacted by a male claiming to be from the HMRC who said they were owed money due to unpaid tax and asked them to transfer money to an account. They unfortunately transferred the money and were scammed out of around £13,000.

SCAM ONE: Monday, May 24th, a man received a text message claiming to be from his bank stating there was suspicious activity on his account so it had been suspended and someone would be in touch. He then received a telephone call from a male stating he was phoning from the bank and obtained bank details from the victim, unfortunately, almost £5,000 was removed.

SCAM TWO: Police urge public to be vigilant following scams across NI: On Tuesday, May 18th, police received a report that a man had received a message from someone claiming to be from his bank and stated that someone was attempting to access his account, the message instructed him to ring a number which he did, he was then told on the call to transfer his money into another account, unfortunately he agreed and has been scammed out of almost £13,000

crest-centred.png

Superintendent Gerard Pollock said: “We understand that any amount of money lost to a scammer is a horrible experience for anyone: The threat of fraud, both online and offline, against the public is a constant focus for us and I want to take this opportunity to again appeal to people that on no account should anyone disclose their personal or financial details over the phone; always err on the side of caution. It’s really important that if you have older members of family, talk with them and tell them legitimate providers will never seek their personal details, such as banking information, over the phone. This is a really important conversation to have: Guarding your personal and banking details is essential. Never disclose them to any unauthorised person: If you have any suspicions at all about a call you receive, hang up and phone the organisation the person is claiming to represent to check their authenticity. Ideally, make the call from another telephone so you can be sure the original caller has not remained on the line. Never be pressured into a transaction over the phone.

If you have any concerns about unsolicited calls, emails or letters then please report it to Action Fraud via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning 0300 123 2040. You can also call police on the non-emergency number 101.” …….For further advice and information visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/scamwisenior the ScamwiseNI Facebook page @scamwiseni

We know that Glenn was previously assaulted outside his home on 29th December 2019 and while he wasn’t badly injured, he was left frightened by the attack: Glenn’s heartbroken family need answers and deserve to see these barbaric killers put behind bars. We would ask those with information to come forward:

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Detectives investigating a serious incident in Derry/Londonderry on Friday night (21st May) during which masked men fired shots in a residential area of the city are appealing for witnesses and information #AceNewsDesk report

Paramilitary Crime Taskforce Appeal Report: ‘After masked men fire shots in Derry/Londonderry: The incident involving at least 12 masked men who had gathered in Ardfoyle, just off Bishop Street, was reported to police just before 9pm on Friday. Police subsequently became aware of video footage circulating on social media showing masked men firing shots into the air’

For Page Image - Crest centred.png

Chief Superintendent Darrin Jones added: “The sight of armed and masked men on the streets of Derry/Londonderry is unacceptable. The recklessness of discharging firearms in a crowded residential area with young children actually present is beyond belief: “ That such actions would be applauded by onlookers is also deeply concerning.

“However, the public can be assured we will continue to work with communities and our partners in the Paramilitary Crime Task Force to disrupt those involved in such criminal activities and reduce the harm they cause in our communities.”[23/05/21] Fresh appeal in relation to missing brothers Patrick and Fabricio Hovarth

Derry City & Strabane Area Commander, Chief Superintendent Darrin Jones said: “An investigation is underway to establish who is responsible for this brazen armed show of strength that was carried out when it was still light outside, and in front of a significant crowd of people, including young children: The fact this occurred in the middle of a built-up area is even more shocking because any of the bullets fired could have ricocheted or strayed at any moment and into the nearby crowd, among which young children were present: It is extremely worrying these masked gunmen thought it was acceptable to carry out this reckless act and it illustrates the contempt they have for people in their community: What occurred was utterly appalling and has no place in today’s society, nor is there any justification for such scenes: Our officers have been in the Ardfoyle area conducting enquiries today, and I am appealing to anyone who can assist our investigation to get in touch. In particular, we want to hear from anyone who witnessed what occurred: Did you see the masked men in the area? Did you see how did they got there? Did you see how they left? Do you know who organised the event? Do you know what vehicles were in the area on Friday night and have you any CCTV, or do you know of any in the area? Did you capture what occurred on dash cam, or on your mobile phone?

If you have information, I would urge you to get in touch with us and tell us what you know. The number to call is 101, quoting reference number 1969 of 21/05/21.” A report can also be made online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Detectives are appealing for information following an arson attack at the home of a serving police officer on the Glenarm Road in Larne during the early hours of this morning, Thursday 29 April #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.02: At around 1.45am this morning Police received a report of three cars on fire at the address.

Arson Attack at Home of Serving Police Officer: ‘Police attended and found that the cars had been set alight all three cars were destroyed as a result. The fire had also caused scorch damage to the dwelling. The officer, his wife and daughter, who were in the house at the time were not injured’

Detective Chief Inspector Dunny McCubbin said: “We are investigating this as an incident of arson. This was a completely reckless attack which could have had serious consequences. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported in what was a terrifying ordeal for the officer and his family. There are no words to describe those who would set fire to vehicles in the dark of night outside a family home when the occupants were asleep inside. Their actions stand in stark contrast to the officer who everyday serves our community with dignity, respect and courtesy: “At the present time we are keeping an open mind as to the motivation behind this attack however a primary line of enquiry is that criminal elements may be responsible. Detectives have now initiated a full investigation, which I can assure the community will be thorough and robust: “I would take this opportunity to appeal for the help of the people of Larne and further afield in identifying those responsible. Were you in the Glenarm Road area late last night of early this morning? Did you see anyone or anything you felt was suspicious? Do you have any information about this incident? No matter how small or insignificant it may seem, please get in touch.”

Anyone with any information about this incident or who may be able to help with the investigation, is asked to call detectives in Larne on the non-emergency number 101 quoting reference number 100 29/04/21, or to submit a report online using the non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/.

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI Terrorism Investigation Unit Report: Detectives have today launched the Major Incident Public Portal as part of their investigation into the attempted murder of a female member of police staff, who is also a part time police officer #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.28: The device, which had explosives attached to a container with flammable liquid, was designed to cause a fireball which would have engulfed the victim’s car and anyone in it or anyone close by, or those calling to the house:

UPDATE: Dungiven attempted murder: Detectives launch Major Incident Public Portal: Detective Superintendent Richard Campbell said: “We are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the viable device which was discovered beside the young mother’s car in Ballyquin Road, Dungiven on Monday 19th April.

Crest.png

“What is really distressing is the terrorists placed the bomb at the rear of the car directly at the point where the victim’s three year old  daughter sits. It demonstrates the complete and utter disregard those who planted it had for the life of a mother and her very young daughter. This was a cowardly and despicable act carried out by desperate people. They deserve no support from any part of our community.

“While the investigation is at an early stage and detectives are keeping an open mind, we are aware that a claim has been made on behalf of the new IRA and this is a strong line of enquiry for us.

“I appeal to anyone who has any knowledge of this attack, or indeed of anyone involved in dissident republican, or other violent or terrorist, activity to come forward and provide any information they have to the police. We particularly want to hear from anyone who was in the area of Ballyquin Road, Dungiven between Monday 12th and Monday 19th April 2021.

“Today we have launched the Major Incident Public Portal at: https://mipp.police.uk/operation/PSNI21Q07-PO1 so that people can tell us what they know, send photographs or upload video or dash-cam footage.

“I am appealing to anyone who has any information to talk to us. Please pick up the phone and tell us what you know on 101 or alternatively on the anonymous Crimestoppers charity number on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/.

“We all need to work together to bring those responsible for attempting to kill a three year old child and her mother to justice.”

“This was a vicious attack on a woman in her own home – a place where she should have been safe and secure. I want to reassure the local community that we are working round the clock to apprehend the perpetrator. 

“Members of the public will see a greater police presence in the area as a team of detectives carries out investigations close to the property and in Limavady town centre, today and over the weekend. We will have more officers on the ground and mobile patrols in the area.

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Police have made two arrests in relation to an incident in Coalisland in the early hours of Saturday 17th April during which a police officer was injured and a suspected cannabis factory was subsequently discovered #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.20: As part of follow-up enquiries, a search of a property at an address in Coalisland was carried out where a suspected cannabis factory and a quantity of suspected Class B drugs, with an estimated street value of almost £17,000, and other items, including drug-related paraphernalia, were seized. They have been taken away and will be subject to further examination.

PSNI Officers Arrests made after suspected cannabis factory discovered: ‘Police responded to a report of a suspected burglary in progress at an address on Dungannon Road at around 12:50am. Two male suspects were located in the vicinity and, as one of the officers attempted to detain one of the suspects, a male officer was punched’

A 41-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of offences, including burglary, handling stolen goods, possession of a Class B controlled drug, cultivating cannabis, assault on police and resisting police. A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of offences, including burglary, handling stolen goods, cultivating cannabis and possession of a Class B drug with intent to supply. Both men remain in custody, at this time, assisting police with enquiries.

Inspector Cochrane said: “The officer who was assaulted was taken to hospital as a precaution and is expected to return to duty today. However, what happened to our officer must be condemned. This morning, our colleague was working to keep people safe when he was assaulted. It’s completely unacceptable and must never be tolerated.”

Inspector Cochrane is appealing to anyone who may have been in the Dungannon Road area around 12:45am to 12:50am and saw any suspicious activity to call 101, and quote reference number 77 of 17/04/21. You can also submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ Alternatively, information can also 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.

Inspector Cochrane added: “I want to take this opportunity to thank the member of public who made the report about the suspected burglary in progress to us. I would also take this opportunity to encourage anyone who sees any unusual or suspicious activity in their area to call us: “ The public can be assured we are committed to tackling the illegal supply and use of drugs, and we will continue to investigate those who profit from the consequent misery and harm, and I would ask any member who has any information about drugs or drug-dealing in their community to call us so we can take action. That call could make all the difference.” [16/04/21] Male arrested on suspicion of fraud following call from relative

(BELFAST, N.I.) PSNI REPORT: A man in his 50s has been shot in the legs by masked men in the Waterside in Londonderry in the second such attack in the city within three days after previous violence across the capital that injured 14-officers #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.16: The Police Service of Northern Ireland described the latest shooting as a “ruthless attack” ……Those who carry out these shootings have no regard for the trauma they are causing either to the victim or anyone in the vicinity of the attack,” it said:

Londonderry: Second man shot in legs in city this week: It happened at a house at Whitethorn Drive in Currynierin at about 23:00 BST on Thursday: Two men forced their way into the house before shooting the man a number of times in the legs & on Tuesday a man in his 20s was shot in what police said was a “paramilitary-style assault” in the Bogside.

14 minutes ago

The shooting on Thursday night happened in the Currynierin area of the city

Derry’s Mayor Brian Tierney said his thoughts were with the injured man and his family after the “brutal” shooting on Thursday: “This isn’t something we want in any of our estates or any of our streets,” he said:

‘Shootings need to stop’

“It only instils fear and intimidates an entire community when people are running around acting as judge, jury and executioner.

“I wholeheartedly condemn the actions of anyone who decides it is a good idea to take the law into their own hands.”

It is the seventh shooting in Derry since the start of this year.

Mr Tierney, an SDLP councillor, said he would raise his concerns about the recent gun attacks with police on Friday:

Sinn Fein councillor Paul Fleming said the attacks “need to stop immediately”.

“There is no place for these type of incidents in our society and those behind them need to realise that and go away,” he said.

Detectives have asked anyone with information about the attacks to contact them.

Last Week on Saturday 10th April: 14 officers injured in latest Belfast disorder

crest-resized.jpg

Police are investigating further disorder in Belfast last night: The disorder occurred in various parts of the city including Duncairn Gardens -Tigers Bay area, and North Queen Street: During the disorder, which started shortly after 5pm, petrol bombs and masonry, including roof tiles, were thrown at police. There was an attempt to hijack vehicles on Limestone Road and, on North Queen Street, a car was hijacked and set on fire and pushed towards police lines: Three male teenagers, all aged 14 years old, were arrested during the disorder and they have all been released pending further enquiries: As a result of the disorder on North Queen Street, 14 officers were injured bringing the total number of officers injured during recent disorder to 88.

Chief Inspector Darren Fox said: “These were disgraceful scenes, which lasted until approximately 1am, that unfolded on the streets of our city last night. This was reckless and dangerous criminal behaviour which resulted in a number of our officers sustaining injury. Thankfully, most of these injuries are not serious. However, a male officer was knocked unconscious and required hospital treatment. As you can imagine, none of our officers go out expecting to be attacked in this way: “ Again, we reiterate our message that this shameful and senseless behaviour is achieving nothing other than wrecking local communities. Residents in these areas, or indeed anywhere, do not want or deserve to experience the fear many of them will have felt in recent nights: “ I am appealing to all those with influence to help bring this violence to an end and, to parents, guardians and community leaders, we ask that you use your influence to ensure we do not see a repeat of such disorder: “ The community can be reassured we will continue to work to keep people safe, and an investigation is underway and evidence gathered will now be reviewed and those identified will face the full rigour of the law.”

#belfast, #londonderry, #paramilitary, #psni

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI FULL REPORT: At least 20-police officers were injured last night when ‘petrol bombs & bricks were thrown at officers during sustained attacks after previous nights of violence as calls for calm across U.K. & Ireland continue #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.09: Police have recently received numerous reports from residents across Northern Ireland stating that they have been contacted by people claiming to be officers asking them to withdraw money from their accounts and hand over bank cards, jewellery and other valuables.

PSNI Report: ‘Police warn against criminals posing as police officers Detectives from PSNI’s Economic Crime Unit are warning the public to be extremely vigilant following multiple reports of criminals posing as police officers’

crest-centred.png

Detective Inspector Joanne Harris from the Economic Crime Unit said: “Over recent days, we have seen an increase in the number of scams reported to us where fraudsters pose as police officers. Unfortunately, this has resulted in people losing large sums of money and valuables with some people being told they need to leave money in an envelope outside their house to be collected.

“Victims have been asked about how much money they keep in their house, and are told not to let family members know that they had been contacted. One older person was accused of owing money, whilst another person was enticed to leave their house with a sum  of money to meet a fraudster. Luckily this person’s suspicions were raised and she did not lose any money.

“I am urgently advising the public to be vigilant at all times and to be aware that police officers will never call you and ask for cash, bank details or questions about valuable possessions. Criminals are continuously coming up with advanced and sophisticated ways of targeting people, especially those who are more vulnerable or older.

“If you have older relatives or family members, please take time to share this information with them so they can be fully aware of this type of scam.

“Our message is simple, never ever disclose any personal or banking details to anyone over the phone or online, no matter where they say they are calling from or how convincing they may seem.”

Protecting your personal information and banking details is extremely important. If you have received a call of this kind or if you are concerned by the intent of unsolicited calls, emails or letters the please call police on the non-emergency number 101, make a report to Action Fraud via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning 0300 123 2040.

For further advice and information visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/scamwisenior the ScamwiseNI Facebook page @scamwiseni . ScamwiseNI have recently issued some helpful videos which show how these type of scams can take place and the terrible impacts for the victims.

We are keen to hear from witnesses of this incident

Appeal for information following disorder in Belfast: ‘Police are appealing for information following disorder in west Belfast yesterday evening (Wednesday 7 April)’

Detective Sergeant Kitchen said: “Shortly after 6pm, we received a report that a press photographer, who was attending disturbances on the Shankill Road, had been assaulted: “ The man was returning to his car which was parked in the nearby Cupar Way, when he was approached by two men who attacked him and caused damage to his camera equipment: “ A short time later, just before 7.30pm we received a report that a double decker bus had been hijacked at the junction of Lanark Way: “ The driver and passengers were removed from the bus before it was set on fire.
No one was injured during the incident; however the driver was left badly shaken: “ We would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed either of these incidents or who may have captured footage on their mobile phone to get in touch. We would also appeal for anyone who was a passenger on the bus to come forward.

“Witnesses can get in touch by calling 101 quoting reference number 1682 of 07/04/21.”
You can also submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/

Sustained Disorder in Belfast

Sustained Disorder erupted last night (Wednesday 7 April) in the Lanark Way and West Circular Road areas of West Belfast.

Condemning the violent scenes Assistant Chief Constable Jonathan Roberts said: “We witnessed intense disorder in a built up area for a sustained period:

“During this time officers came under constant attack. At times there were upwards of 600 people present.  Petrol bombs, bottles, masonry, and fireworks were thrown during scenes of violent disorder.

“A bus was hijacked and set on fire. The driver, a key worker in our community, was removed from his bus and violent crowds threw petrol bombs into it, setting it alight.  Thankfully the driver escaped without injury. A moving bus on fire surrounded by a large crowd could have led to members of the local community being seriously injured.”

ACC Roberts added, “During the disorder six AEPs were discharged by officers. Eight officers were injured. Two men aged 18 and 28 have also been arrested on suspicion of riotous behaviour.

“A press photographer was also assaulted by two masked men.  An investigation is underway into his assault and criminal damage to his equipment.  During the disorder, two motorists had their vehicles hijacked and burnt out.” 

ACC continued: “I know the actions that we saw last night are not representative of the local community in West Belfast.

“Whilst many of those involved in the disorder last night were adults, it is clear there were many young people involved.  Young people were being encouraged to commit criminal acts by adults, who stood by clapping and encouraging the violence.  There is absolutely no justification for this. Young people need to quickly realise that by engaging in this type of behaviour they are not only risking their safety, they are also risking their futures.  Today I am appealing to parents and guardians please speak to your children. To those community, civic and political leaders please exert whatever influence you have to quell this disturbing, unnecessary and unwanted violence.

Assistant Chief Constable Roberts concluded: “I would like to thank the many local community representatives who tirelessly worked with officers to restore calm. I want to assure the community that over the coming days, police will be proactively working to identify all of those involved in this disorder, arresting them and where appropriate bringing them before the courts.

“Officers will continue to patrol all areas in Belfast, tackling not only disorder, but all types of criminality including burglaries, thefts, assaults and domestic abuse. 

“We will continue to work with the community, political representatives and other partners to ensure we never have to witness public disorder on this scale again.”

We are keen to hear from witnesses of this incident

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information that will assist the investigation to contact us on the non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

(BELFAST, N.I) JUST IN: PSNI REPORT: Police in Derry/Londonderry have come under attack for a seventh night during disorder in the city during which cars were set on fire and petrol bombs were thrown at officers #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.08: Later in the evening, it was also reported two vehicles were set on fire in the Nelson Drive area of the Waterside where it was reported a number of youths had gathered, and bins were set on fire on the road. Police also received a report about a brick being thrown at a taxi, which was carrying a passenger at the time, on Limavady Road at around 11:30pm. Thankfully, neither the driver or passenger were injured. There were also reports of bins being set on fire in the area.

Officers attacked during seventh night of disorder in Derry/Londonderry: ‘The disorder started when police were dealing with a security alert in the Templemore area yesterday afternoon. A number of petrol bombs were thrown at police. Thankfully, there were no reports of any injuries’

crest-resized.jpg

Derry & Strabane District Commander Darrin Jones said: “Last night, we saw further disorder in our city during which our officers came under attack again. Again, we saw disgraceful scenes during which cars were set on fire and property damaged: “ This is reckless and criminal behaviour, and it has to stop. It is absolutely appalling and achieves nothing except harm to our community: “ I will continue to appeal to those in our community with influence to do what they can to stop this senseless behaviour. I would also appeal directly to parents and guardians to know where their children are and what they are doing to ensure they do not get caught up in criminality and that they are kept safe and away from harm: “ I would appeal to everyone in the area to help diffuse any local tensions and prevent any further disorder.”

Police attend reports of house parties in south Belfast: ‘Officers issued a total of 94 Cov4 and 11 Cov2 notices, arrested three people, reported four people to the Public Prosecution Service and issued one Community Resolution Notice’ Over Monday night into the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, 6th April) police attended a number of house parties in the Holyland area of south Belfast area.

Chief Inspector Gavin Kirkpatrick said: “We received a number of reports throughout yesterday afternoon, last night and into the early hours of this morning of anti-social behaviour in the Holylands area. Officers attended on a number of occasions to disperse various groups of people: “ Police would encourage residents to continue to report issues of anti-social behaviour to them. While local officers will be making follow-up enquiries, it is disappointing that we continue to receive reports about noisy parties and anti-social behaviour in this residential area: “ In light of last night’s events police are currently in the Holylands and will continue to have a nightly policing operation in this area this week. Local residents should be respected and should not have to contend with this type of behaviour.”

(BELFAST, N.I) JUST IN: PSNI Police Report: At least 30-Petrol-Bombs Thrown at officers during Saturday night as protestors took to the streets in areas across the Derry/Londonderry & earlier in Newtownabbey #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.04: Chief Superintendent Darrin Jones, Area Commander, Derry City and Strabane said: “Last night, Friday, 2 April, police received reports of youths gathering in the area of Nelson Drive and Tullyally areas of Derry/Londonderry:

Update on Derry/Londonderry disorder: ‘On their arrival, they came under sustained attack from a large group of youths and young adults throwing masonry, bottles, petrol bombs and fireworks. As a result 12 officers sustained injuries including head, leg and foot wounds’

crest-centred.png

“Also during last night’s disorder damage was caused to a care home in the Nelson Drive Area.  This has caused untold fear and distress to the residents.  A care home should be a place of sanctuary for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. I would speak directly to those who were rioting last night, how would you feel if your grandmother or grandfather was in this care home and subjected to this violence?

Chief Superintendent Darrin Jones continued: “This has been the fifth night of disorder in Derry/Londonderry, this is totally unacceptable.  It is vital that we all send out a message to those responsible that such behaviour will not be tolerated.   The people of Derry/Londonderry deserve to feel safe within their own homes and be able to walk the streets without fear.

“I would ask that anyone who has any influence in communities – whether parents, guardians, community or elected representatives – please, use that influence to ensure young people do not get caught up in criminality and that they are kept safe and away from harm.

“My job is to keep people safe and I will continue to work alongside local representatives, partner agencies and members of the community to address any issues..  I would appeal to everyone in the area to help diffuse any local tensions and prevent any further incidents.”

We are keen to hear from witnesses of this incident

North Area Commander Chief Superintendent Davy Beck said: “Last night again saw people taking to the streets of Northern Ireland to riot. From approximately 7.30pm to 10.30pm a crowd of approximately 20-30 people, consisting of young people and older men some of whom were wearing masks gathered in the O’Neill Road/Cloughfern area of Newtownabbey:

crest-centred.png

30 petrol bombs thrown at police during Newtownabbey disorder: “ In total 30 petrol bombs were thrown at police and three vehicles were hijacked and set on fire.

“One man aged 47 was arrested and he currently remains in police custody.

“Throughout the evening local councillors worked very closely with police in an effort to diffuse the situation.

Chief Superintendent Beck continued: “This was an orchestrated attack on police who were carrying out their duties to help protect the people of Newtownabbey: My officers put on their uniform every day and go out into the community they serve, not knowing what lies ahead of them. However this does not deter them from turning up every day to do their duty. No-one, no matter what line of work they are in deserves to be subjected to any kind of violence. The officers who serve the Newtownabbey area are fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters, they have families who wait every day on their loved ones coming home, hoping they have not been injured, or worse.

Chief Superintendent Beck concluded: “We are living in unprecedented times, dealing with a global pandemic, no-one needs the added pressure of disorder in their community. Everyone deserves to live in peace, free from violence. I would appeal to those who are taking to the streets to stop immediately, their actions are causing nothing but harm and distress to the very communities they claim they are representing. The people of Northern Ireland deserve better. “No-one wants to be dragged back to the dark days when rioting was a common occurrence on the streets of Northern Ireland:

“We will continue to work with our partner agencies, community and elected representatives and the people of Newtownabbey to ensure we can all live in a peaceful society.

“ Anyone with any information about last night’s rioting is asked to call us 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/

(BELFAST, N.I) Court Report: Four men have been charged with conspiring to supply class A drugs as part of a Paramilitary Crime Task Force investigation into the organised crime activities of the South East Antrim UDA (SEA UDA) #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.02: They were among five men arrested yesterday (23 March) by National Crime Agency and the Police Service of Northern Ireland officers during a series of raids in the Carrickfergus area:

NCA & PSNI Report: ‘Four men charged as part of PCTF investigation into South East Antrim UDA: The men appeared before Belfast Laganside Magistrates Court on Thursday 25 March’

‘The arrests relate to the seizure of over one kilo of cocaine found following searches of two parked cars and nearby land in the Greenisland area of County Antrim in November 2020: The fifth man has been released pending a report to the PPS’ The operation formed part of a long-running PCTF investigation into the alleged organised crime activities of the South East Antrim UDA (SEA UDA).

24 March 2021

Five men have today (23 March) been arrested on suspicion of drug supply offences by officers from the National Crime Agency and the Police Service of Northern Ireland working together as part of the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF).

Today’s operation saw more than 80 officers execute six warrants in the Carrickfergus area of Northern Ireland.

Three officers walking towards a vehicle, one wearing an NCA jacket

The men, aged 33, 38, 39, 40 and 43, were detained on suspicion of conspiring to supply class A drugs are now being questioned by officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force at Musgrave Police Station.

The arrests relate to the seizure over one kilo of cocaine found following searches of two parked cars and nearby land in the Greenisland area of County Antrim in November 2020.

NCA Deputy Director of Investigations Craig Naylor said: “ Today’s activity is the culmination of a major investigation undertaken by the NCA in partnership with our colleagues in the PSNI as part of the PCTF: “ This operation is hugely significant, and we believe it will have substantially disrupted the drug dealing activities of the South East Antrim UDA. The investigation will continue with the evidence we have retrieved today: “ The SEA UDA have long known to be involved in many forms of organised criminality, doing untold damage to the community and exerting fear in neighbourhoods: “ Working with our partners in the PCTF we are determined to do all we can to bring that to an end.”

Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Head of Criminal Investigations Branch, Detective Chief Superintendent John McVea, said: “ Working with our partners in the Paramilitary Crime Task Force, we are committed to continuing to target the organised criminality associated with all paramilitary gangs who exploit their local communities to cause harm and create fear: “ Today’s search and arrest operation is a significant milestone in an investigation into the drug dealing activities of the South East Antrim UDA. The harm caused by illegal drugs to individuals and communities is evident: “ Drugs cause nothing but destruction and distress, not only to the people who take them, but also to their families who deal with the heartbreaking fall out associated with drugs, including death, spiralling debts and intimidation: “ Criminals who supply illegal drugs don’t care who they harm in the process of making money to line their own pockets and fund other paramilitary activities: “ The PCTF has the resilience and determination to target, disrupt and frustrate those who continue to do the greatest harm to the people living in our communities.”
