Six Arrested – Seven To Go
NCA launches renewed appeal to trace Most Wanted fugitives.
The National Crime Agency and partners have renewed an appeal to help trace some of the UK’s most wanted fugitives. Twelve months ago the NCA launched its most recent appeal to find 13 men who had gone on the run – all believed to be hiding in Spain, or with strong links to the country. In that time, six wanted men had been traced, arrested and are at various stages of the extradition and judicial process. Today, the appeal – run in conjunction with independent charity Crimestoppers, Spanish law enforcement, and UK policing – is renewed.
The Wanted Men:
Heavily tattooed Jack Mayle, 31, on suspicion of supplying Class A drug MDMA and other drugs. Mayle was suspected of running a drug line in south London and allegedly worked with a dark web drugs’ supplier.
When he fled from Croydon he had a tattooed neck, a diamond tattoo under his left eye and ‘Croydon’ inked on the outside of his left forearm. On both hands he has tattoos on his fingers reading ‘trap star’. His neck is tattooed with warriors and religious figures on horses. He has a full back tattoo. May have tried to alter his appearance.

John James Jones, 32, white, around 6ft tall, stocky with dark hair, of Ormskirk, Lancashire, is wanted for wounding with intent. Jones allegedly stabbed two victims with a knife causing serious injuries. It is believed he fled the UK and there is information to show he stayed at a hotel in Madrid the night after the stabbings, but left rapidly the next morning.
Callum Michael Allan, 24, around 182cms tall with fine hair, blue eyes, slim build and a Tyneside accent is wanted for 12 alleged offences including: possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine, possession of cannabis, assaulting an emergency worker, affray and dangerous driving. On 11th June 2019 police raided a house suspected to be used for drugs deals. Allan fled and assaulted two officers who restrained him. He was in possession of 113.29gm of heroin. He was charged and appeared at court in April 2020 where he was given unconditional bail but failed to return. Links to Alicante and Marbella.
Mark Francis Roberts, 29, white, 6ft 1in tall, of medium build, has a 7.6cm scar down his right leg. He has green eyes with heavy eyebrows. He is right handed and has a potential scar on arm obtained during the attempted robbery. From Liverpool, Roberts is wanted for alleged grievous bodily harm and the attempted robbery of a man’s £60,000 Richard Mille watch. The victim was attacked by two men with a blade at around 1.30am on 30th September 2016 after he parked his car on his home driveway. The victim refused to surrender his watch and was so badly injured he suffered life-threatening injuries and was treated in a critical care unit for puncture wounds, a collapsed lung and many lacerations. The victim heard one of the attackers say he’d cut himself in the attack and Roberts’ blood was later identified at the scene.
Roberts has links to Scotland and Spain.

The NCA’s International Crime Bureau and International Liaison Officers work with foreign law enforcement on behalf of UK police forces to track and arrest criminals wherever they are in the world. It’s usual for fugitives to continue to commit crime whilst on the run and these men will be known in criminal circles wherever they are and some will be trying to blend in to the large British communities for whom Spain is home.
Lord Ashcroft, founder of the charity Crimestoppers UK, said: “We are incredibly grateful to the public for supporting our joint campaign with the NCA. By passing on vital information, their actions have helped catch wanted individuals who pose a genuine danger to our communities. If you know the whereabouts of any of the remaining Most Wanted Fugitives, please tell our charity. We are available 24/7, so contact us either online or on the phone. Your personal details will never be asked for.”
