A Lithuanian man sought by police over a series of alleged serious organised crimes could be in Luton, according to the Met Police.

Algimantas Ringaila, 34, is wanted by Lithuanian authorities in connection with being part of an organised crime group.

Police believe that the Lithuanian national is connected to organised criminality across Lithuania between 2005 and 2014, including drug trafficking, gun trafficking and trafficking stolen vehicles.

He is wanted in connection with a total of 13 offences.

Police say he has connection with Luton and Tower Hamlets, London.

Ringaila is one of 17 men traced by Met Police’s extradition unit.

Detective sergeant Peter Rance said: “We believe that these people are dangerous, so taking them out of our communities and putting them before the courts is of paramount importance.

“I urge the public to look closely at these pictures. Do you recognise these men? It may be that they live next door to you, or you see them regularly elsewhere in your community.

“If you have information on their whereabouts, please tell Crimestoppers, so that we can arrest them. If you see them, call 999 and do not approach them.”
