A BELGIAN wanted for heading a Charleroi-based cocaine and heroin trafficking criminal network is under arrest.
Guardia Civil detained the 36-year old in his home in Balerma in El Ejido.
The Guardia launched the operation at the end of March after the Belgian authorities issued a European Arrest Warrant requesting a search for the man identified as M.S., believed to be living in Spain with his girlfriend.
The Guardia reported they had kept the fugitive’s residence under surveillance for several months, establishing that he avoided leaving the property. Once his identification was confirmed, officers accompanied by two Charleroi local police raided the house and arrested him.
The Belgian faces charges of belonging to a criminal organisation and drug dealing, as well as money laundering.
The Guardia also reported the 36-year old had been in possession of firearms.
