A wanted Birmingham drug trafficker has been arrested in Amsterdam after nearly 8 years on the run

A wanted Birmingham drug trafficker has been arrested in Amsterdam after nearly 8 years on the run.

Mark Liscott, from Great Barr, was jailed in 2005 for the large-scale supply of cannabis resin in the Midlands.

He has been wanted by the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU) since he fled after being released on licence in 2012.

Acting on intelligence that drugs were being traded, Amsterdam Police officers raided a house in the centre of the city.

Liscott attempted to evade capture by jumping across neighbouring balconies whilst carrying around 18,000 Euros, but he was successfully apprehended.
