Unlawfully-at-large prisoner Shane Frane has been arrested in the Republic of Ireland on Thursday evening, 1st February. 

The 36-year-old was arrested on an extradition warrant sought by Police Service of Northern Ireland for being unlawfully at large from prison from 17th January.  

He appeared before Dublin Extradition Court today, Friday 2nd February, where he has been remanded into custody pending extradition proceedings.

Sergeant Davey from the International Policing Unit said: “This case demonstrates the close working of the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the Public Prosecution Service to pursue fugitives from this jurisdiction. 

"It also highlights our close working with An Garda Síochána Extradition Unit in tracking down wanted persons and bringing offenders to justice. 

“Our message is clear to anyone who has left Northern Ireland to avoid the consequences of their actions. We will use all powers available to have you arrested and returned to Northern Ireland.”
