Euro cop tells how eastern European gangsters, direct links to drugs sources and hi-tech fraud are changing face of crime in Scotland - The Daily Record: "DAVID WILSON was surrounded by Dutch cops as he began his first Europol briefing.
It was July 2006 and the subject was Scotland's Most Wanted - Jamie Stevenson.
The net was closing on the Iceman and the detective sergeant was preparing the ground for a European arrest warrant to be issued.
Wilson said: 'After we took £400,000 off Stevenson's associates, he fled to Holland where he remained for three to four months.
'The purpose of my briefing was to make arrangements for his arrest.
'We had been working with the Dutch and Spanish from the early days of Operation Folklore and this was the endgame.'
Two months later, Stevenson was arrested at his home in Burnside.
But as cops swooped in Glasgow, Wilson was in Amsterdam to observe the gangster's rented flat being searched by Dutch police.
Folklore, which also nailed John 'Piddy' Gorman, was the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency's most successful operation."
