A US man wanted by the Spanish and Belgian authorites has been arrested in Fuengirola.

The 54-year-old is now being held on alleged fraud and money laundering charges.

A warrant for his arrest was issued in 2007 by the European authorities and a second was issued in 2010 by Spain.

Police heard he had settled in Fuengirola and focused their search on this area.

The arrest took place at a bakery in Miramar.
