National Police agents have arrested Sherwin Bemshomin Windster in Murcia, one of the most wanted fugitives in Europe for escaping from a psychiatric hospital in the Netherlands while serving a sentence of five years and six months for two robberies with firearms, in one of which one person died.
As reported by the National Police on Wednesday, the arrest of this man took place last Friday in a shopping center in the capital Murcia after investigators verified that it was a place he frequented often.
It has been five months of investigation and close cooperation between the Dutch and Spanish police, with daily exchange of information through the Dutch link in Spain.
The shopping center where he was arrested was surrounded by policemen, who covered all the entrances and exits, warning the agents about the extreme violence of the fugitive, being detained by eight agents who did not give him any opportunity to carry out any escape maneuver.
It was in June 2022 when the detainee organized, together with another inmate convicted of the same acts, a plan to flee the psychiatric hospital where he was admitted for serious mental disorders.
Both prisoners managed to make a hole in the walls of the place and escape outside, where a vehicle was waiting for them to flee.
A week later the partner was arrested, but his partner had managed to flee to Spain, where an intense investigation began focused from the outset on the province of Murcia, since the fugitive's network of contacts coincided with several municipalities adjacent to this town. .
The Dutch authorities offered a reward of 10,000 euros for any clue related to the fugitive.
Given the high degree of danger of the fugitive and the need for immediate intervention with special investigative measures, the entire case was handled within the framework of the European fugitive network 'ENFAST'.
In one of the two robberies in jewelry stores that the detainee committed in 2015 in the Netherlands, a person died as a result of the blows inflicted by him and his accomplices.
His modus operandi consisted of assaulting the store at gunpoint and gagging its owners while they stole everything.
