NCA renews its appeal to trace 7 Most Wanted Fugitives, possibly in Spain

The UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) and partners have renewed an appeal to help trace some of the country’s Most Wanted fugitives.

Twelve months ago the NCA launched its most recent appeal to find 13 men who had gone on the run – all believed to be hiding in Spain or with strong links to the country.

Since then, six wanted men have been traced, arrested and are at various stages of the extradition and judicial process.

The new appeal is being run in conjunction with independent charity Crimestoppers, Spanish law enforcement, and UK police forces.

Steve Reynolds, NCA regional head in Spain, said: ‘Spain is immensely popular with British people who live and take holidays there, but it is not a safe haven for criminals.’

He said that ‘the NCA’s International Crime Bureau and International Liaison Officers work with foreign law enforcement on behalf of UK police forces to track and arrest criminals wherever they are in the world’.

Highlighting that it is usual for fugitives to continue to commit crime while on the run, Reynolds said that ‘these men will be known in criminal circles wherever they are and some will be trying to blend in to the large British communities for whom Spain is home’.

He said: ‘You may know one of them from your town or village. Loyalties change over time and we urge anyone with information about these men to help us find them.’

Anyone with information about one of the Most Wanted should call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or fill out an anonymous online form at the UK charity’s website Crimestoppers-uk.org.

Callers in Spain should dial the freephone Spanish number 900 926 111, which will be answered by Crimestoppers in the UK (using translation if required).
