A “stop and search” in Carrick has resulted in the sum of £3,230 being forfeited through the Proceeds of Crime Act.

A spokesperson for PSNI Carrickfergus explained that a male had been stopped and searched by a police officer at Victoria Road last March.

“A substantial sum of money was found in a plastic bag on his person which he was unable to give a satisfactory account for,” the spokesperson said.

“As a result, an application under the Proceeds of Crime Act was made to the magistrate’s court, and last Thursday, the amount of £3,230 was forfeited.”
