Spanish cops swoop on Kinahan cartel associate Gary Vickery in Lanzarote


Spanish cops swoop on Kinahan cartel associate Gary Vickery in Lanzarote

Dublin man Gary Vickery (38) had previously pleaded guilty to having a leading involvement in conspiring to import class A and B drugs worth at least €27m into the UK.

He is due to be sentenced with two other accused, high-level Kinahan member Thomas 'Bomber' Kavanagh and Daniel Canning from Walkinstown in the capital.

However, a warrant was issued for Vickery's arrest after he failed to appear before Ipswich Crown Court on several occasions, claiming he couldn't get a PCR test.

On Wednesday, he was finally arrested by the Guardia Civil at a pub in Lanzarote following a lengthy surveillance operation.
