Two men have been arrested in the Netherlands in connection with drugs, serious organised crime and wilful fire-raising offences in Scotland.
James Stevenson, 56, and Dean Ferguson, 28, were taken in by Dutch National Police following a joint operation on Friday.
Stevenson was arrested at around midday on Friday while out jogging in Bergen op Zoom.
The pair will now be subject to extradition proceedings following their arrests.
Police Scotland assistant chief constable Tim Mairs said: “I am grateful for the assistance of the National Crime Agency (NCA) and our international law enforcement partners in arresting the men who are wanted in Scotland.”
NCA regional head of investigation for Scotland, Gerry McLean said: “Any arrest of a fugitive over extremely serious allegations is a great result.
“The agency has been working endlessly with Police Scotland and international partners to trace these men and return them to the UK.
“It does not matter where fugitives go, we will work with partners like the Dutch National Police who’ve provided superb help, to trace and arrest them.”
