Crimestoppers relaunch operation Captura to catch criminals on the costas

Mon 21st Feb 2011

UK crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) will later today reveal the next batch of wanted individuals that are facing prosecution in the UK and are believed to be living in Spain to try and evade capture.

Ten new appeals, which include some of the UK's most dangerous individuals, will be revealed later today at a press conference in Alicante, an area with a large British ex-patriate community and a potential hideout for fugitives on the run from British law enforcement.

Crimestoppers and SOCA work closely with the British Embassy in Madrid and British and Spanish law enforcement agencies. The campaign highlights appeals for information on individuals facing prosecution in the UK who have European Arrest Warrants issued against them. Information given to Crimestoppers anonymously can help locate these criminals so that arrests can be carried out by Spanish law enforcement.

Calls to the Spanish 900 555 111 telephone number are answered in the UK by Crimestoppers' call agents and a translation service is available upon request. People can also pass on information anonymously via the crimestoppers website. Those in the UK should call 0800 555 111 or fill in an online form.
