STUPEFYING SEIZURE: The suspect is wanted on suspicion of drug trafficking.
NO sooner had the Spanish National Crime Agency and UK charity Crimestoppers listed 10 more wanted British fugitives thought to be lurking in Spain on Thursday, October 20, than the National Police rounded up one of those previously on the register in Alfaz del Pi, Alicante.
The 40-year-old male suspect, whose initials are LW, is wanted for drug trafficking and other public health violations and faces a 10-year jail sentence if convicted.
He originally hails from Hemel Hempstead but has been residing in Alfaz del Pi after moving there from the Costa del Sol.
His arrest under a European Arrest and Delivery Warrant follows a year-long police investigation within the wide-ranging ‘Operation Captura,’ which aims to locate criminals lying low in Spain.
