DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Organised Crime Branch have arrested two people over an ongoing money laundering and insurance fraud probe.
During planned swoops in Ballymena, a 48-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman were arrested.
The investigation is being headed up by Detective Chief Supt Roy McComb.
He said the probe is protracted and will take some time to complete.
Since May this year, a total of 16 people have been arrested, questioned and released on bail pending further inquiries.
An extensive police file on the case will eventually be forwarded to the Public Prosecution Service on whether to bring charges or not.
