Man on France's wanted list is arrested in Marbella

  • The man was wanted in connection with murder and drug trafficking offences

A French citizen, born in Oman, who was wanted in connection with murder and drug trafficking offences was arrested following a car chase on Tuesday last week in Marbella.

The police pursuit began when a BMW with three occupants accelerated away from officers who were checking documentation at 4.15pm.

The driver switched vehicles during the chase, while a female occupant fled on foot. The driver proceeded to ram into police cars to escape, and only stopped when an officer fired a warning shot into the air.
