first_img DL Debate – 24/05/21 Detectives from the PSNI’s Serious Crime Branch have arrested a 37 year old man today in connection with the attempted murder of an off duty police officer in Derry on February 22 this year.A viable Under Vehicle Improvised Explosive Device was discovered at the home of the officer in the Ardanlee area.He was arrested in the Ballymagroarty area under the Terrorism Act and has been taken to Musgrave Serious Crime Suite where he is being questioned by police.Detective Inspector McKenna said: “If this UVIED had exploded with our colleague and his young family in the car it would have had devastating consequences. Police believe the New IRA are responsible for this cowardly attack during which they put everyone’s safety at risk as the device was left in a residential area and could have exploded at any time.“I would like to thank the public for their assistance to date but I believe there are still people in the community who hold vital pieces of information that could assist police and I would appeal to them to make contact with Detectives on 101 or alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.” Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Facebook Man arrested for attempted murder of police officer in Derry Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Homepage BannerNews Google+ By News Highland – December 21, 2017 center_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest Previous articleRuaille Buaille le Colm Feiritéar 19/12/17Next articleDonegal woman convicted for failing to adequately feed ‘Misty’ News Highland Harps come back to win in Waterford Google+ News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population growslast_img
