Detectives investigating the North Antrim UDA have arrested a 24-year-old man under the Terrorism Act.

The arrest came after a vehicle was stopped in the Coleraine area on Monday night.

The vehicle was seized and two houses searched.  

Items have been recovered for further examination.

Detective Inspector Brennan said: “Investigating the criminal activities of North Antrim UDA remains a priority for The Paramilitary Crime Task Force and we will continue to be relentless in our pursuit of them.  

They continue to commit human rights breaches against their victims, and their violent acts have no place in our communities. They act as if they are the judge and jury.

“My message is clear, we will pursue all avenues and bring those who hold their community to ransom before the courts.

“Working with our partners and communities we are committed to tackling the criminality carried out by these groups.

“We continue to ask for the public’s help, and appeal to anyone who has information  that could assist our effort to contact police. We will listen to you and we will act on information you provide.

You can call 101, or you can submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via

The independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at”
