The man was also wanted in relation to offences in Newtownabbey, Armagh and Lurgan from June 2012.

This is another example of how successful we are at tackling crime when we work in partnership with local neighbourhoods. Through support and information from the public we have been able to bring a convicted criminal back into custody.”
