The National Police has stopped in the south of Tenerife a young German with a valid European search warrant issued by the authorities of his country in relation to his alleged involvement in the crimes of drug trafficking, extortion and injuries.
For these events, he faces requests for imprisonment of up to 15 years in Germany, say police sources.
The investigation was based on information, through the international cooperation bodies of the Police, of the possible presence of this person in Tenerife.
The investigations made it possible to locate the fugitive in the south of the island, where he had allegedly settled, specifically in El Fraile, with a false identity and with the financial help provided by some relatives.
The agents verified that in order to avoid his arrest and extradition, he was taking all kinds of measures, which did not help him because he was finally arrested and brought to justice.
