MAJOR Kinahan crime boss ‘Fat Freddie’ Thompson has been arrested in Ireland. 

Thompson has been detained on drug charges in Dublin after a high-speed car chase.

It comes after two gang-related murders in the space of five days.

The first saw Marbella-based Kinahan collector David Byrne slain at an MGM Marbella boxing weigh-in in Dublin.

And then last night, Eddie Hutch Snr – the brother of notorious gangland figure Gerry ‘the Monk’ Hutch – was shot dead at his home by four masked gunmen.

Thompson had gone into hiding for some months following a fallout with the Kinahan clan.

However, he is understood to have cleared the air with boss Christy recently and was thought to be working for crime syndicate once again.
