A man in north Belfast has been issued with a community resolution notice for having drugs after a house was raided by anti-terror police investigating dissident republican activity.

Yesterday detectives from the PSNI Terrorism Investigation Unit carried out a search at an address in Vicinage Park, seizing laptops, electronics and herbal cannabis.

As a result a 28-year-old man was issued with the notice for possession of a class B controlled drug.

Detective Inspector Martin Cush said: "Today's operation is further evidence that those involved in dissident republican activity are actively involved in criminality, including drugs, operating under the convenient flag of 'paramilitarism'.

"The reality, however, is that they are criminals who will exploit any circumstances they can for their own gain. Be under no illusion, these so-called paramilitaries destroy lives and harm our communities."
