DETECTIVES from the PSNI’s Terrorism Investigation Unit have seized drugs and cash following a search in West Belfast in a probe into a dissident republican gang.
It followed a search by TIU detectives under the Justice and Security Act 2007.
The cash has been seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and will be subject to further investigation.
Speaking about the search, Detective Inspector Andrew Hamlin said:
“A search of a house in West Belfast was carried out earlier today as part of an operation focusing on the activities of Oglaigh na hEireann.
“Drugs and a significant quantity of cash were seized.
“We will continue to frustrate and disrupt the activities of those involved in terrorism so that communities can prosper and people can live without fear.”
