Britain’s ‘most wanted’ arrested

ARMED police have arrested Britain’s most wanted man in South Africa, following a three-year manhunt spanning Spain and Holland. Drug trafficker and fraudster Martin Evans, 52, stole over €50 million and was finally found and arrested on Saturday night in Johannesburg. He is described as a ‘real scalp’ for the National Crime Agency. The fraudster – a former Young Businessman of the Year for Wales – first turned to crime in 1995 after his double-glazing business collapsed. He set up an ostrich-breeding business – promising annual returns of 70% – and targeted newly-retired people for investment, pocketing more than €110,000 worth of investors’ savings.
