Hunt for Manchester man Brian Capon wanted over drugs conspiracy

Wanted NCA

National Crime Agency (NCA) investigators are appealing for information on the whereabouts of a Manchester man wanted in connection with the supply of class A and B drugs worth in excess of half a million pounds.

Brian Capon, 32, originally of Moreton Avenue, Stretford, is suspected of involvement in an criminal group distributing cocaine, cannabis and amphetamine in the Manchester area, though there is information to suggest he may recently have left the region.

He has a distinctive three-star tattoo below his left ear.

Two other man have already been charged in connection with the same alleged conspiracy, while a third linked individual was arrested and charged with firearms offences following an NCA appeal in May of this year.

Capon is additionally wanted by Greater Manchester Police on suspicion of possessing class A and B drugs with intent to supply, following the discovery of a quantity of drugs at his property in Moreton Avenue in July 2017.

Greg McKenna, NCA regional head of investigations, said:

“Capon is known to have family and friends in and around Manchester and I’ve no doubt that someone seeing this appeal has information on his whereabouts, even if he is no longer in the area himself.

“I would also point out that anyone helping him or actively frustrating our attempts to locate him could find themselves being arrested for assisting an offender.

“Criminal gangs involved in the supply of drugs are also involved in violence and exploitation which has a direct impact on our communities here in the north west. This is why the NCA and our policing colleagues take these kinds of offences so seriously.”

Anyone with information on Capon’s whereabouts should contact the NCA on 0370 496 7622 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
