Rasharkin security alert ‘Reckless ‘

Yesterday evening just after 10pm, police were alerted to two devices found at two separate addresses in the village.

What we understand is one of the devices was thrown through a window while the other was left on a window ledge.
ATO arrived on the scene at approx 11.30pm and dealt with both viable devices separately. Both family are beleved to be relatively new to the houses, about a month.

Several residents were evacuated to the local parish centre while the incidents were dealt with.
North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan who was in Rasharkin during the incident described it as;

“A reckless attack on the community.”

Anybody with any information is asked to contact the PSNI on101 and quote reference 1321 of 16/04/19.
