Wanted man books ‘one-way ticket to Marbella’ and taunts police with beach video

A wanted man has been taunting police on social media, claiming to be relaxing on a sandy beach in Marbella as they continue to search for him.

Jordan McDonald, from Doncaster, has been on the run from South Yorkshire Police for five months and posted a video of himself walking in the sand.

However, the clip doesn't show any of the surrounding scenery so it is unclear if he really has gone abroad.

The force first issued an appeal to find Mr McDonald back in September 2020 in connection with an alleged conspiracy to deal Class A drugs.

But the 24-year-old still hasn't been tracked down and has been insulting the police on Facebook.

On October 14 he posted a status to say that SYP had tracked him down to Ireland but that he had already left, ExaminerLive reports.

The post said: "I wanna take this time to get a round of applause for South Yorkshire Police.

"Your detective work is superb. You found out I went to Ireland, finally you got something right.

"Unfortunately u missed the fact I got back to the UK."

He then used the rest of the post to say that he was innocent and he would only hand himself in when the force apologised to him.

Then just over a week later, he posted a picture with the caption "Home sweet home" in another taunt to police officers trying to find him.

A few days after that, on November 5, he wished his friends and family a nice Christmas and said that he would "be home soon".

The most recent on his Facebook page is Mr McDonald claiming to be in the Spanish resort of Marbella.

He posted a video of him walking on a beach on December 15 last year claiming he booked a one-way ticket.
