Greek Police Arrest Briton Wanted for Cocaine Trafficking

Wednesday, 30 December 2015 09:46 AM

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Police in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki say they have arrested a man wanted in Britain on suspicion of running a large cocaine trafficking ring.

A police statement Monday said the suspect, Simon Dutton, 39, was arrested in a Thessaloniki hotel on a European arrest warrant.

He will be detained pending a Greek court decision on whether to extradite him to Britain.

Dutton is wanted there for alleged involvement in smuggling cocaine with a street value of about 1.6 million pounds ($2.4 million) from Spain to England. British police seized the shipment in 2009.
