British bank robber arrested in Tenerife
The National Police recently succeeded in arresting a British citizen at a hotel in Tenerife, following an investigation. He was the subject of a European detention and extradition order issued by the British authorities for bank robbery and robbing a security van which was carrying money. .
On March 21 2007, the suspect was arrested for the first time after a robbery in Swinton. He managed to hide a mobile phone in his clothes, so he continued to have contact with his accomplices in a criminal gang. The next day, they raided the police transport van that was taking the suspect to the Salford court. The masked gang members, armed with firearms, were able to free him and help him escape. Only six days later, he was caught again when he was involved in the robbery of an armoured security vehicle carrying cash. This time he was sentenced to ten years in prison. In November 2018, he managed to escape and leave Britain. He used the identity of a family member, whom he looks very similar to.
