TWO British thugs have been snatched by Spanish police.
Dennis Patrick O’Brien of Liverpool, 61, and a 43-year-old Mancunian known by initials K.P.G have been arrested last week on Mijas Costa.
The arrests have been coordinated by Spain’s National Police and UK’s Serious Organised Crime Unit as part of operation Captura.
O’Brien was arrested in Trafalgar Bar at the Calahonda del Sol urbanisation. He’s a key member of the Kelly family from the Garston area of Liverpool and has been on the run for four years.
O’Brien has a pending life sentence for smuggling one and a half tones of cocaine into the UK. He also has charges for ambushing armoured bank vans and has a murder charge for the killing on William Osu in 1982.
K.P.G is accused of selling drugs at a bar he ran on the Costa del Sol. Sizeable amounts of marijuana, hashish and cocaine were found on his premises and several clients were carrying drugs on them.
Both men will shortly appear in court.
