Speaking to Newry Times, Inspector Kelly Gibson said, “We have been running targeted operations on an ongoing basis, and this particular operation was primarily aimed at disrupting and preventing criminal activity, particularly burglary, and ensuring road safety.

 

 

“Our overall aim is to keep people safe and bring more offenders before the courts.

“On a daily basis, police officers respond to calls for help from people who have been affected by criminal activity so we are very much aware of the effect these incidents can cause.

 

 

She added, “We are committed to bringing those responsible before the courts.”
