Offences of ‘serious nature’, say Police
ANTI-terror police have arrested a Birmingham man on suspicion of posting terrorist publication on the internet.
The 21-year-old man from Alum Rock was detained by officer from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit at his home early this morning.
A search was conducted with computer and electronic equipment taken away for forensic examination.
Detective Inspector Adam Gough says: “The offences we are investigating are of a serious nature. However, this action was not taken in response to any immediate threat.
“The arrest was made with the minimal amount of disruption to neighbouring properties.
“We expect to recover a large number of electronic files, so our enquiries could take some time to conclude.”
