A man was sentenced at Newry court yesterday (Tuesday) following extradition from the Republic of Ireland on criminal property charges.
Michael Harty was sentenced at Newry Magistrates’ Court to six months in prison, suspended for three years, for possession of criminal property, handling property stolen in the Republic of Ireland and theft.
Officers from the PSNI’s International Policing Unit had extradited the 39-year-old from the Republic of Ireland on Monday, where he had been arrested on an international warrant.
Detective Inspector Lennon from the International Policing Unit said: “We continue to work with our partners on both sides of the border to bring offenders before the courts. Our message is clear that we actively pursue wanted persons outside Northern Ireland if you are wanted to account for your actions in this jurisdiction.”
