Two days later, in the Palmanova-Calvia area of Palma de Mallorca, M.H.S., a citizen wanted by the British authorities for several drug trafficking-related crimes, was arrested. This investigation was initiated thanks to the collaboration between the British NCA agency. and the London Metropolitan Police, with the UCO’s Fugitive Team.
His circle of close contacts was quickly identified, as well as possible locations where he might be found. Surveillance on several locations eventually led to his discovery. He was arrested and placed at the disposal of the Central Court of Instruction No6 of the National High Court on duty.
Collaboration between the Guardia Civil and the British authorities is proving decisive in the location of fugitives from justice. As shown by the recent arrests of criminals listed in the “Most Wanted” campaign of the Crimestoppers organisation, combining common efforts produces results.
