Police have arrested a person for ‘50 plus frauds’ in Ballymena - but they had to break down a door to accomplish their objective!

Posting on the local PSNI facebook page, they said: “What happens when you actively avoid arrest for 50+ frauds and barricade yourself into your flat?

“Well on this occasion DST (District Support Team) will come and relocate your door and ourdetectives will take you into custody.”

They concluded on a more formal basis: “DST assisted in a search today in Ballymena for detectives investigating a number of fraud occurrences across the North Area, a person is now in custody.”
