A SWEDISH expat had the shock of his life when he returned home to find it occupied by an armed drug trafficker.
The unnamed Swede, 39, was forced to call police when he returned to his Torrevieja villa to find a 25-year-old narco pointing a gun at him.
Guardia Civil arrived to the sounds of gunshots before seeing the suspect fire two more in the direction of the Swede and making a run for it.
The Spaniard, who was soon cornered by agents, had turned the expat’s home into a drugs den, while he was away.
Police discovered 86 ecstasy pills, 27g of marijuana, a revolver, a large machete, a baseball bat, cash and several mobile phones.
But no sooner had the Swede got his house back when he TOO was arrested.
It came after police discovered the car he had driven back from Sweden was stolen and had been fitted with false number plates.
He is now facing charges of car theft and the falsifying of documents.
The Spaniard has been charged with violent robbery, drug trafficking, illegal possession of weapons and resisting arrest, among other charges.
