Spanish police help arrest Scottish fugitives over gangland-related murder in Glasgow

  • One of the men was arrested in Marbella

Two fugitives allegedly involved in a gang-related murder in Glasgow (Scotland) in August have been arrested, one in Marbella and the other at Glasgow Airport.

T. D., 27 and a UK national, was arrested in Marbella and has already been extradited while C. C., 22 and also British, was intercepted at Glasgow Airport having fled on a flight from Malaga hours previously.

The events for which they were wanted occurred on 17 August in Glasgow, when the two fugitives and a third individual shot a member of a rival drug-trafficking gang at point-blank range.

Investigators from the National Police, in collaboration with the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) and Police Scotland, launched a joint operation on learning that two of the alleged perpetrators of the murder were hiding in the province of Malaga.
