Homes searched in Strabane

DETECTIVES investigating the activities of violent dissident republican terrorists have out searches in Strabane.

The operations yesterday (Wednesday) in the Mourne Avenue, St Colman’s Drive and Innisfree Gardens areas were in connection with a number of recent incidents across Derry City and Strabane including pipe bomb attacks in Melmount Villas, Strabane earlier this month and in Drumrallagh in July.

Detective Inspector Michael Winters said, “We are committed to disrupting the activities of these groups.


“We know that the vast majority of people support us in our aims and will continue to stand with us as we work to dismantle these groups and free communities from the threat they pose.”
