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.
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.
