A part of the scandalous Colin Gunn network, Craig Martin led the drug-trafficking gang with records indicating he has numerous crimes linked to his name since the age of 16. He was also sentenced to imprisonment in his home country after robbing a jewellery store that claimed the owner’s life.

“He went to jail many times in the past. He spent 13 years in jail in connection with an armed robbery at a jewellery shop at Nottingham city, which resulted in the death of a jeweller. He was convicted by Nottingham Court for selling illegal drugs worth millions of pounds.”

Despite getting a chance to start a new life after serving 13 years in jail, the 38-year-old involved himself in drug and weapons-related trafficking crimes worth millions until Interpol recently issued a Red Notice against him.
