Police are still seeking to arrest three Merseyside fugitives who are thought to have fled the UK.

Stockbridge Village man Mark Quinn was arrested on Friday in Maastrict, Holland , during a joint operation involving the National Crime Agency, Police Scotland and local officers.

Quinn had been wanted for seven years in relation to a Scottish based drug conspiracy.

The former boxing coach, who has been a wanted man since 2014, is now facing extradition proceedings back to the UK.

NCA deputy director Matt Horne and Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Pat Campbell both welcomed Quinn's arrest.

Quinn is the latest in a long line of fugitives from the region to have been arrested while overseas.

Earlier this year Croxteth man Paul Moogan was arrested by the NCA in Dubai. The NCA believe the Liverpool man is responsible for the export of drugs from Latin America to Europe.

Moogan is also facing extradition back to the UK from the UAE.

However police are still keen to speak to three other men from across Merseyside thought to be overseas.

Double murder suspect

Liverpool man Kevin Parle is wanted by police in relation to the murders of teenager Liam Kelly and young mum Lucy Hargreaves.

Parle was named as a wanted man by police after a group of men burst into a house on Lambourne Road, Walton in 2005. Ms Hargreaves was shot dead as she slept on a sofa before the house was torched.

Along with Lucy's murder, Parle is also wanted for the tragic gunning down of 16-year-old Liam Kelly on Grafton Street in Dingle, in 2004.

When Liam died from shotgun wounds on Grafton Street he was the city's then youngest ever victim of gun crime.

Parle was released on bail after he was arrested in connection with Ms Hargreaves' murder, a case in which the killers were understood to have been looking for the 22-year-old's boyfriend, Gary Campbell.

There have been reported sightings of Parle in the Canary Islands, Asia, and accounts of him on the Costa Blanca in Spain.

He is described as white, 6ft 5ins tall and of broad build.

He has blue eyes and a 1-inch scar on the left side of his head. He has been known to have cropped ginger hair but his hair colour or style may have changed over time.

Shotgun slaying

Vinny Waddington, 18, was pillion passenger on a motorbike when he was shot by one of three men who were inside an Audi A3 car on Banks Lane, Garston, at 8.47pm on July 14, 2015.

Luke Kendrick and Ryan Bate were jailed for life for the murder , but police have always insisted there was a third man in the Audi thought to have been David Ungi jnr.

When Kendrick and Bate stood trial Liverpool Crown Court heard how Ungi jnr had been involved in a fight with Vinny Waddington's brother in a south Liverpool gym.

It was alleged in court that Ungi hurled a dumbbell at Vinny’s brother Liam Waddington in Pro-Flex on Wood Street, Garston, on July 13, less than 24 hours before the teenager's death.

The NCA believe Ungi fled to Amsterdam 18 hours after the fatal shooting and released CCTV footage of him calmly strolling through Dover Ferry Terminal.

Ungi, formerly of Melbreck Road in Allerton, is described by NCA officers as an “extremely dangerous individual."

Boom Boom

Paul 'Boom Boom' Cahoon, has been wanted by the North West Regional Crime Unit since 2015 in relation to a drug conspiracy.

Cahoon, 45, from Rainhill near St Helens, is thought to have fled to Dubai several years ago and may be living there under a different name.

In 2016 Liverpool Crown court heard how police were keen to speak to Cahoon in relation to a large scale drugs conspiracy which stretched from Merseyside to South Wales.

Cahoon, who fought under the moniker 'Boom Boom', was one of Merseyside's first big name MMA fighters.

Police have said that Cahoon might be in Dubai but that they are keeping an open mind as to his whereabouts.

Anyone with information about Parle, Ungi or Cahoon should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
