Sergeant Davey from the International Policing Unit said: “This arrest is good example of our close working with authorities in Romania, the National Crime Agency, UK Border Agency and An Garda Siochana.

"This was a fast moving case which resulted in a successful arrest in Belfast for very serious offences committed in Romania only 2 weeks ago.

“The Police Service will continue to work with all out international partners and play our part in bringing fugitives before the courts.

"Our message is clear that there is nowhere to hide in Northern Ireland and that we will actively pursue all wanted persons believed to be in this jurisdiction.”
