Most Wanted: National Crime Agency reveals UK’s 12 most wanted fugitives believed to be hiding in Spain

The National Crime Agency’s Most Wanted Campaign is aiming to track down fugitives wanted in relation to a variety of crimes throughout the UK

Twelve men are wanted in connection with crimes including murder, large scale drugs trafficking and supplying firearms and ammunition.

A new appeal has been launched to trace and bring to justice 12 UK fugitives believed to be hiding in Spain.

The National Crime Agency’s Most Wanted campaign is run in conjunction with independent charity CrimeStoppers, Spanish law enforcement, and UK police.

Steve Rodhouse the NCA’s Director General of Operations was joined by the Security Minister Rafael Pérez Ruiz of Spain’s Interior Ministry, British Ambassador to Spain Hugh Elliot and Mark Hallas, CEO of CrimeStoppers, at the campaign launch in Madrid.

Steve said: “With 86 offenders arrested in our last fugitives campaign, criminals know we will never give up and we’re never far behind them.

“Our Spanish partners were crucial to many of those arrests, and in 2021 arrested and returned more than 25 wanted UK fugitives.

“Loyalties change over time and we urge anyone with information about these men to help us find them.”

Anyone with information about any of the Most Wanted is urged to call CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, and callers in Spain should call the freephone Spanish number 900 926 111, which will be answered by CrimeStoppers in the UK.

Alternatively, members of the public can fill out an anonymous online form at the UK charity’s website.
