Officers from the PSNI’s Tactical Support Group working with the International Policing Unit arrested the 30-year-old man on an Irish extradition warrant on Thursday, 30 May. He is due to appear before Laganside Extradition Court on Friday, 31 May.

The offences occurred in the Dublin area in 2021 and 2022.
