A BRITISH drug kingpin has been arrested after 3,100kg of hashish was seized from a luxury yacht off the coast of Almeria.
The Guardia Civil were alerted after an Icelandic aircraft spotted an inflatable boat loaded with packages of hashish next to the yacht.
Spanish authorities managed to intercept the boat 14 miles off the coast of Almeria, where they arrested the 58-year-old British man and three polish men.
After searching the yacht, the Guardia Civil discovered 92 packages of hashish weighing 3,100kg.
The four men aged between 47 and 58 were hauled before a court in Madrid and sent to prison while they await trial.
