Spanish police catch a UK criminal – level 2

29-04-2015 15:00

A man from the UK was very good at drug-trafficking. He lived in Spain and the UK police put him on the most wanted fugitives list.

Last year in Spain, someone murdered a person that was also from the UK. The Spanish police started to spy on this man from the UK. In February of this year, the UK police shared that it was looking for the same man.

The UK and Spanish police worked together in an operation and the Spanish police caught him. Spain said that it caught 65 of 75 people in the operation so far.

Difficult words: drug-trafficking (when you get and send a lot of drugs), fugitive (person  hiding who the police want to arrest). You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
