‘Britain’s Escobar’ Andrew Deamer arrested in dawn raid

British man Andrew Deamer, 52, dubbed the "East Midlands Escobar" for his role in a Colombian cocaine racket has been arrested after commandos stormed his home. He is believed to have run labs where cocaine was disguised for export.
He ran the £354m cocaine ring in the Colombian town of Rionegro near Medellin, where Pablo Escobar operated a cocaine trafficking ring in the 1970s and 1980s.

Police, army and navy troops also seized his wife Marcela Zapata, 37, in the dawn raid. The couple regularly flaunted their wealthy lifestyle online.
