Allan Foster wanted for a gangland shooting on Tyneside has gone to the top of a Most Wanted list after becoming one of just two villains on the run from police on the Costa del Crime.Allan Foster is believed to have flown from his Spanish hideaway to assassinate David ‘Noddy’ Rice in South Shields in May 2006.Detectives believe Foster flew out of the country the day after the killing, which happened at a seaside car park near Marsden Grotto, and has remained a fugitive since.
Last month Foster, 31, was named among 10 suspects by Crimestoppers on a most-wanted website targeting the Costa del Sol.Now eight of those have been tracked down after support from the Spanish public and authorities, leaving just Foster and one other at large.An update from Crimestoppers yesterday said: “The Operation Captura campaign encourages anyone who recognises the wanted criminals on its website to call Crimestoppers from Spain, to give information anonymously on a dedicated Spanish free phone number. Calls are answered in the UK by Crimestoppers call handlers.“Crimestoppers worked with both UK and Spanish law enforcement agencies and the British Embassy to set up the operation.
“On the day of the publicity launch in Malaga, Most Wanted saw eight times more people visiting the site, with 77,000 page impressions on the first day. Two weeks after the launch, more than 700 calls had been received which produced 65 useful pieces of information.“Eight offenders have been located so far, for crimes including drug trafficking, murder and fraud.“In Spain, the concept has caught the public’s imagination. The Spanish media have continued their interest and media coverage of the campaign. Commentators have expressed considerable interest in setting up a similar mechanism to aid Spanish investigations.”The Spanish coastal resorts have been dubbed the Costa del Crime since the 1970s because hundreds of British criminals have fled there.Mr Rice, 42, was shot nine times by two masked men on the seafront at South Tyneside after being lured to the meeting by Steven Bevens, 39. Bevens worked for Foster, who police believe fired the fatal shots.
Last year Bevens was sentenced to life for murder, while getaway driver Derek Blackburn, 51, of Humberside, who turned informer, was given four years for assisting an offender, later cut to two and a half years.
Foster sometimes goes under the name Sean Wilkinson, and is known to have associates in the Kent area and links to the Canary Islands and Majorca.
He is also wanted for two offences of conspiring to supply controlled drugs and for the theft of a diamond ring.Yesterday a Northumbria Police spokesman said: “We are still trying to trace Allan James Foster. We would urge anyone who has knowledge of Mr Foster’s whereabouts to get in touch.”
