The alleged leader of a Merseyside cocaine trafficking group that expected to bank more than £1 million pounds sterling every month has been arrested in Spain after more than six years on the run. 29-year-old Dominic McInally (photo above) was arrested when officers from the Spanish National Police raided the Casa Masa strip club, near Marbella, in the early hours of February 28.
McInally was a subject of Operation Captura, which targets fugitives from British justice suspected to be hiding out among the British national community in parts of Spain. Jointly run by the National Crime Agency, Crimestoppers, and British and Spanish authorities, Operation Captura has now resulted in 85 subjects being apprehended since 2006. Just ten remain at large.

Following his arrest, McInally was taken to Madrid, where extradition proceedings will begin. He has been wanted by Merseyside Police since January 2014, when officers intercepted a car in Crosby and recovered 6 kilograms of cocaine in a hidden compartment. Five members of the group allegedly led by McInally were later sentenced to a total of 48 years in prison.

“The arrest of McInally in Spain is another fine example of forces and agencies working together across borders to apprehend a suspected serious and organized criminal,” Assistant Chief Constable Ian Critchley from Merseyside Police said. “We await the extradition proceedings and in finally seeing McInally put before the courts.”
