AN EXPAT on the run from Belgian authorities for drug trafficking has been arrested in Marbella.
The 39-year-old man had been sentenced to 30 years in prison by a Belgian court, but had gone on the run in the Costa del Sol.
A European arrest warrant had been put out for the Belgian national, who previously ran one of the largest drug gangs in the northern European country.
Spanish police stopped the man at a roundabout in the Maestranza district on Tuesday night at around 23:00 after spotting him.
He now faces extradition back to Belgium.
