EXCLUSIVE by James Bryce and Jon Clarke
PORN films and wife-swapping parties. These are just some of the unsavoury events that neighbours insist took place at the palatial home of Toni Muldoon.
So they were decidedly over the moon this week, when they heard the dramatic news that he had been arrested in connection with a multi-million euro fraud.
Now awaiting extradition to the UK, the Olive Press can reveal that Antony Michael Muldoon, 65, was picked up after a two-week manhunt on the Costa del Sol.
Ordered by Interpol, he was located at the low key Miramar Hotel in Fuengirola.
According to a police report, he had checked in with his Kenyan girlfriend Nyambura Jane Wangari, who is in her 20s.
Geraldine French, 59, from Scotland and 29-year-old South African Bradley Rogers have also been arrested.
At least 11 arrests have been made over the last year on instruction from UK authorities for similar offences.
Muldoon is currently being held in Madrid, awaiting extradition.
A number of luxury cars and a yacht have been seized, while police also scoured various properties.
Brought by Suffolk Trading Standards, Muldoon (above) is charged with numerous counts of fraud and money laundering totalling well over €6 million.
A spokesman for Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) confirmed the arrest to the Olive Press.
A spokesman for the British Embassy also confirmed that it ‘was aware’ of the arrest of a British national, but no consular assistance had been sought.
Neighbours meanwhile, at his upmarket urbanisation in the hills above Mijas, were overjoyed with the arrest.
“We hadn’t seen Tony Baloney for a while and wondered where he had gone.
“We have had to put up with years of late night parties, screening porn films and wife-swapping events.”
A Spanish pensioner added: “It has always been a lovely place to live, but that house was a real stain on paradise.”
When the Olive Press confronted Muldoon at the property last year, he told us: “I’ve been here 26 years I am not going anywhere. Does it look like I’m in a rush to leave?”
I would just like to say….. what a load of rubbish. This man has always been very polite to all of his neighbours including myself. His house was a very warm and friendly palace. We have all been invited to his house parties!!! many of us always went. Leave the guy alone….. He was always there to help all of us in a crisis!!
I guess it’s now TIME for his friends to publicly STAND UP to support him in his crisis. His true friends will demonstrate their support.
i hope they throw away the key and keep him locked up for good
He stole from vulnerable old ladies but was a coward in reality. I confronted some of his henchmen and told them he needed to pay back what he had stolen or forever be looking over his shoulder. The spineless toad paid back what he owed to that one pensioner but he ripped off thousands of others in a time share scandal. He and his team of theives convinced timeshare owners that he had buyers for their properties, but they needed to pay a fee upfront. Miraculously the “buyers” dissappeared but not after Muldoon had secured a signature on an agreement saying that the fee was non refundable.
May he be taken advantage of in jail to the same extent he took advantage of the vulnerable and innocent.
Evil narcissistic predator!
