Officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force have carried out a search of a property in the north Belfast area this morning, Tuesday 20th June.

The search at the house is part of an ongoing investigation into suspected criminality linked to the west Belfast UDA.

Detective Inspector Corrigan said: “As a result of the search, a number of items including a mobile phone and suspected Class A controlled drugs were seized.

“The items will now be taken away for further forensic examination.

“Our enquiries remain ongoing and this morning’s search is a demonstration of the PCTF’s commitment to tackle all types of criminality linked to paramilitaries, in an ongoing effort to rid our communities of the harm these groups cause and of their coercive control.

“We would like to thank the local community for their continued support and will continue to act on the information you provide us.

“I would encourage anyone with information about the supply or use of illegal drugs to contact police on 101.”
