The police asked for citizen collaboration to help get these people off the street. Moreover, thanks to that, there are now only nine on the most wanted list in Spain.
Police detained Manuel Bellido Moreno
This man was born in Madrid in 1975. He is very tall at 2 metres and has dark eyes and a dark complexion. Furthermore, Moreno has escaped capture on many occasions and is involved in the supply and distribution of counterfeit money. However, according to an official Tweet by the Policia Nacional, he was arrested today (Wednesday) in Madrid.

Largest currency counterfeiter in Spain
According to reports from El Pais, this man has been wanted for 15 years. “Authorities consider him the largest currency counterfeiter in Spain, and eight courts want to catch him. They have also issued an an international extradition order,” as stated by the National Police.
A citizen in Madrid who had seen the photos of the “most wanted” approached the police telling them, that although he was now bald and a little fatter, he had recognised the offender. As a result, the police set up surveillance in the area. Furthermore, he was supposedly living on Tapicería Street in the San Blas area of Madrid. Although neighbours tried to stop the police, officers could arrest the man here.
There are lots of wanted criminals, but from the initial list published on Monday, there are now nine remaining. If you have any information about any of these people, you can contact the police confidentially. They have set up a specific e-mail address: email@example.com . Alternatively, you can contact the police directly or call 091.
