Hostage robbery investigation continues

An update to a previously noted report – the rapid attribution, ahead of the St Andrews discussions, of an armed hostage-taking and robbery in Strabane to “dissident republicans” by the police. Earlier today a number of locations in west Belfast, and Strabane, were searched and ammunition was seized along with a vehicle.. the two individuals arrested have subsequently been released pending further inquiries. Try to keep any specific speculation to a minimum.

    Well you are the one infering there is speculation to be done.

    So why don’t you spit it out then?

    *bloody typical*

    (news not fitting your agenda today?)

    ‘Try to keep any specific speculation to a minimum.’

    OK Pete, it’ll be really hard but we’ll try our best.

    Infering there is speculation to be done, Mark?

    I’ve cautioned against specific speculation while updating a previously noted story.

    That’s all.

    And I’ve actually had more problems accessing Slugger than I have had finding topics to post on today.. but that’s another story.

    I wonder would it be worth having a look in the Newforge police club again?

    Why not join? Then you could search the toilets as often as you like.

    Or if you weren’t interested in an ongoing commitment to searching the place, book a function room instead:
