Man sentenced to 15 months for possession of ammunition in suspicious circumstances

A man has been sentenced to 15 months for the possession of ammunition in suspicious circumstances.

The 41-year-old was sentenced on Friday January 9.

The arrest was made on May 13 last year, following one of the first searches detectives conducted under Op Reiner as part of their investigations into hate crimes being committed across Belfast.

Superintendent Paula Hilman said: “The male was arrested following searches in the Castlereagh area on 13 May last year. I am pleased to say that the hard work of police and the court service has paid off and we welcome the sentence served.

"I hope that this provides reassurance to the community that police are tackling this type of criminality and that this will also serve as a warning to deter others from committing such crime."
