Charges against Brian Carron dropped in terrorism offences case

Charges against a man described by the PSNI as a suspected member of the New IRA have been dropped.

Brian Carron, 34, of Colliers Lane in Coalisland, County Tyrone, was accused of possessing explosives, firearms and articles for use in terrorism.
On Wednesday, Dungannon Magistrates’ Court was told the case was no longer proceeding.
It had been claimed by the prosecution that the offences related in part to the murder of PC Ronan Kerr,
PC Kerr was the victim of an undercar booby trap device on 2 April 2011.
Previously the court was told the case was on track for committal to trial and a hearing was listed for later in June.
But on Wednesday, a Public Prosecution Service (PPS) lawyer said: “All matters are to be withdrawn.”
Mr Carron was released of all bail terms and told he was free to go.
