Lithuania murder suspect extradited after driving arrest

  • Published

A suspect in a Lithuanian murder investigation has been extradited from the UK after being pulled over while driving in Leicester.

In October, a warrant for the arrest of Martynas Zastarskis was sent to the Serious Organised Crime Agency.

The 25-year-old was stopped for a minor driving offence in April and, after appearing in court in London, he was extradited to Lithuania on Friday.

He is wanted over the murder of a man and an assault on two others in Norway.

After he was stopped by traffic police, Mr Zastarskis' identity was confirmed by officers from Operation Rebutia - a specialist Leicestershire Police team set up to track down foreign criminals in the county.
