Biography: Tazey is wanted in connection with Gordon Arthur, another on the Most Wanted list. In March 1999 UK Customs detected 7 million illegally imported cigarettes with a duty and VAT value £1.16 million. A further 21 seizures of alcohol and tobacco were identified which can be attributed to Arthur, with a duty value exceeding £5.5 million and a revenue loss nearer £15 million. In February 2000 Tazey broke her bail conditions and absconded; a warrant for her arrest was issued.
