AN expat who has been found hiding on the Costa del Sol will be extradited to face drug trafficking charges, the Guardia Civil has announced. 

Known only as J.R.B, the Dutch national, 49, was arrested on November 30 from his home in Alhaurin de la Torre in Malaga.

It came after Belgium issued a European Arrest Warrant for the suspect, who is wanted for his alleged involvement in  the importation, production and trafficking of psychoactive and narcotic drugs.

He will face a maximum sentence of 15 years.
