POLICE have arrested a man the Almeria National Court was after to serve a prison sentence for a drug-related killing in Adra four years ago.
Forty-year old D.F.P. was detained in Balanegra in El Ejido after local police spotted him behind the wheel of a car. They discreetly followed the vehicle until he stopped, at which point he was identified and cuffed.
The charges date back to the end of 2015 when police found a body in the Parra de Adra area. D.F.P. was accused, along with three other individuals, of a revenge killing related to the disappearance of a 500-kilo consignment of hashish.
Police said all four, along with a fifth individual, were members of a criminal gang dedicated to drug trafficking.
The 40-year old managed to elude authorities at the time and his whereabouts were unknown until this month.
Immediately following his detention an El Ejido court ordered he be held behind bars.
