THE PSNI has dealt a blow to dissident republican fundraising activities during planned weekend raids.
Contraband cigarettes worth £300,000 were seized in south Armagh as part of searches linked to dissident republican activity.
Detectives from the PSNI’s Serious Crime Branch also seized around 66 bottles of contraband alcohol and £50,000 in cash was also found during the co-ordinated raids on Saturday.
A 31-year-old woman was arrested and released, pending further inquiries.
Police said the HM Revenue and Customs was assisting detectives with the investigation.
