Officers belonging to the Policía Nacional in Motril have arrested an Albanian citizen who had an international arrest warrant out on him.
The 23-year-old, who had a clean criminal record in Spain, was wanted however in Eisenstadt in Austria over several burglaries.
The officers had been on duty in the port when they saw a rental, high-end car with two individuals inside, who must have looked a tad shady, as the police decided to pull them over.
Having identified the two men they found that one of them had a European Arrest Warrant (EAW) in his name so he was immediately taken into custody. It later came to light that a pistol had been found in the parking bay where the driver kept his rented vehicle.
