A suspected drug trafficker who featured in the Operation Captura ‘unlucky thirteen’ campaign has been arrested in The Netherlands.
Ian Stanton, aged 42, from Liverpool, was captured at a house in Rotterdam by the Dutch Police.
Stanton, who is wanted by the National Crime Agency, is allegedly involved in a conspiracy to supply more than 400 kilos of cocaine. The drugs were found in May hidden in a container of frozen Argentinean beef.
Extradition proceedings are now underway.
