A FACEBOOK page set up in the name of ‘Dingwell Legends’, which was promoting drugs parties at Dingwell in Taghnevan and posting photos of masked and armed men, has been shut down.
Just last month a cocaine party at Dingwell was advertised on the page.
The profile picture used by the owner is a logo stating ‘Occupy the Hood’. There is also a sinister photograph of a masked gang of more than 20 people with at least one person armed with a sword.
Another photo of the Hunger Strike mural in Taghnevan has a headline above it stating: “no mc d’s in tem days lmao” .
Also a picture of Lurgan republican Colin Duffy has been posted and has been doctored to show him wearing lipstick and a black wig.
The profile was set up on November 17 and already has 116 friends.
The PSNI said: “This Facebook account has now been brought to the attention of police. We do not monitor Internet sites on a day-to-day basis however we will take appropriate action when we receive complaints of criminal offences that occur within our jurisdiction.”
A spokesperson for Taghnevan Community Development Association said they were aware of the Facebook site. “We totally condemned it and the recent upsurge in anti-social behaviour by a few in the area.”
