Man charged with recording PSNI car registration details

A 32-year-old County Antrim man has appeared at Londonderry Magistrates' Court charged with collecting or recording information likely to be of use to terrorists.

Paul Joseph Currie, a tiler from Bann Court in Portglenone, is alleged to have recorded the registration details of a serving police officer's car in Magherafelt on 1 September.

District Judge Barney McElholm released the defendant on his own bail of £1,000 and a surety of £1,000.

As part of his bail conditions, the defendant was ordered not to have any contact with any other person arrested for the same matter.

Mr Currie is expected to appear in court again in Magherafelt on 10 November.

A 31-year-old man, who was arrested for the same offence, has been released pending police reports.
