1 Mins read

Police Scotland have arrested a 35 year old man this morning in connection with the attempted murder of an off duty PSNI officer who had an under-vehicle improvised explosive device placed under his car in Eglinton on 18 June 2015.

Police Service NI’s Senior Investigation Officer, Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell, of the Major Investigation Team, said: “I would like to thank Police Scotland colleagues for their help in arresting the man in the Glasgow area by virtue of a court warrant on suspicion of attempting to murder a police officer and possession of explosives with intent to endanger life.

“He is due to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court via video link from Musgrave Custody Suite on Friday 22 May 2020.

“Today’s arrest follows a direction on the charges by the Public Prosecution Service following which a European Arrest Warrant was issued in 2017 to extradite the man from the Republic of Ireland. However, he fled the jurisdiction and today he was arrested in Scotland and transported back to Northern Ireland.

“The police investigation into this incident remains active.”
