THREE Britons have been arrested in Marbella on suspicion of kidnapping.
The incident took place last weekend when the victim was shopping with a friend in Malaga.
Two strangers approached the man and forced him into a car at gun point demanding 104,000 euros.
The hostage was then taken to a shed attached to a house in Benahavis.
But National Police working with the Drugs and Organised Crime Unit were able to arrest the two men and a woman on the same day following a tip off from a member of the public.
During the operation, officers seized a firearm and other evidence, which have now been sent for forensic analysis.
