Man accused of using Iraq style IED in County Tyrone
Patrick Carty’s fingerprints found on rare IED in Northern Ireland
Co Tyrone native Patrick Carty (32) was arrested and charged with possession of an improvised explosive device (IED) over the weekend in Northern Ireland.
The Guardian reports that Carty was first linked to the discovery of the device in a field at Killybracken Road in Enniskillen in April of last year. He was arrested this past weekend in nearby Coalisland.
Carty’s fingerprints were found on the outside lining of the device according to PSNI.

Having been linked to the IED, Carty is charged with “intent to endanger life or cause serious damage to property.”
The Enniskillen magistrates court was told that the IED, which is commonly used against British armed forces in Aghanistan and Iraq, had never been seen in Northern Ireland during The Troubles.
Bail for Carty was refused with the explanation that there was a risk of interference with witnesses.
Carty’s supporters applauded him as he exited the courthouse after being charged. He is due to have another court appearance in Dungannon next month.
