ANOTHER successful arrest has been made in Marbella under Operation Captura, Crime fighting charity Crimestoppers has confirmed. Jamie Dempsey from Essex was arrested in a residential property in Benahavis, Marbella by National Police and Guardia Civil on Tuesday afternoon.
Dempsey was sought on an European Arrest Warrant for conspiring to supply cocaine and the facilitation of the use of criminal property.
Between 30 March 2009 and 23 April 2009, Dempsey allegedly conspired with others to supply 299Kgs of cocaine with an estimated street value in excess of 80 million pounds.
Dave Cording, Crimestoppers’ Deputy Chief Executive said: “This is another great result which means that now 50 per cent of the most recent batch of wanted individuals have been arrested.
“Not only is the campaign successful in tracking people down in Spain, but it displaces them as well, but as we can see, no matter where these wanted individuals run to, law enforcement will find them.”
