A BRITISH expat has been arrested for allegedly swiping a fellow Brit’s tablet at Malaga airport. 

The unnamed 45-year-old snatched his alleged victim’s backpack which contained the device, worth around €700, earlier this week.

According to police the tourist, from England, had just landed from the UK and had only taken his eye off his bag for a moment when he realised it had been snatched.

Policia Nacional at the airport reacted quickly and soon tracked down the brazen thief.

The suspect is described as being known to police and ‘regularly frequents the arrival area’, according to La Opinion de Malaga.

A quick search of the Brit uncovered the missing tablet and the latest model of a popular smart phone, which cops believe may belong to another victim.

The investigation continues.
