GOTCHA: The drug baron after being arrested

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.
