Men working on a van at Drumbeg, Craigavon, find what they believe to be a tracking device attached to the underside of the vehicle.

It’s been claimed that a tracking device marked with a military serial number was found under a workman’s van in Craigavon.

Reports suggested the device was found after the workman took his van to be repaired by a mechanic in Drumbeg on Monday.

The device was found under the wheel arch. According to those who found the device it was encased in black rubber and contained a long-life battery pack.

It’s also alleged to have been marked with a military serial number.

It’s been claimed shortly after the device was found police arrived on the estate and started carrying out searches.

One man, Eddie Breen, said he was Tasered and assaulted during the searches.

Police confirmed they were in the Drumbeg area on Monday. They said that police vehicles were attacked with bricks and stones.

In response to the claims about the use of a Taser a police spokesperson said: “Anyone who has a complaint about police behaviour should contact the Ombudsman.”

Republican Sinn Fein said the tracking device was “conclusive proof that not only police but military intelligence are active in this area”.

A spokesman for the party went on to say: “This incident happened less than a mile away from where John Paul Wooton’s car was also fitted with a military tracker. Information from that mysteriously disappeared during his trial.”
