Smokey bags bandit as Brit car thief caught in Marbella

By Matt Ford Thursday, 20 April 2017 17:38 0

A BRITISH car thief with a European Arrest Warrant on his name has been jailed in Marbella.

The unnamed 33-year-old from Chertsey, Surrey, is wanted for the theft of two high-end sports cars, which were stolen from a London dealership in January 2012.

Having swiped the keys for the vehicles during office hours, the man and an accomplice later returned and drove them away.

He was arrested five months later while driving one of the cars, but failed to show up for scheduled appearances at Guildford Crown Court and has apparently been on the run ever since.

Having been picked up by Spanish National Police, he must now appear before the Audiencia Nacional high court in Madrid ahead of extradition proceedings.
