Dennis Patrick O'Brien was apprehended in the Trafalgar Bar in the Costa del Sol resort of Calahonda on Saturday after four years as a fugitive.

Merseyside Police issued a European arrest warrant for the Garston man in 2006 in relation to a conspiracy to supply 1.6 tonnes of cocaine with a street value of £166m.

The 61-year-old’s arrest was the result of an ongoing operation by the Spanish National Police and the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency targeting bars in the region understood to be frequented by British criminals.

Operation Captura, led by the Serious Organised Crime Agency and Crimestoppers, had named O’Brien as a wanted man thought to be on the run in Spain and his mug shot featured on the Captura website.

O'Brien is a member of the Kelly family from the Garston area of Liverpool.

In March 2007 O’Brien’s son, James Kelly, was sentenced to 19 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court for his part in the £166m cocaine conspiracy."
