Drugs and gun crime operation as PSNI raid Co Armagh properties

Police are currently engaged in searching homes across the Craigavon area for drugs and guns.

The raids – code-named Emerald, Burgundy and Jade – are taking place today (Monday) in the first of a series of operations in the district this week.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “These are the three TSG units (main photo) who have simultaneously announced themselves at multiple properties across Craigavon as part of an investigation into drugs and firearms offences.

“We have frequently warned that the two go hand in hand, and today we take a step in trying to put a stop to that.

“Lead by detectives from Lurgan CID and alongside the Lurgan Neighbourhood Team, we’ll bring you any updates later.

“This is the first of our #ABC5 this week. We’ll be tackling a range of offending and risks across the district.”
