SIX people have been arrested in Marbella in relation to a series of violent ‘gangland’ incidents in Salford in the UK, said the Greater Manchester Police in a statement released last week.
In raids on two Marbella properties last Tuesday, three men from Salford, aged 20, 25 and 28, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, membership in an organised crime group and possession of a firearm, while a 41-year-old man from Trafford and a Dublin woman, 31, were arrested on suspicion of membership in an organised crime group, said the police.
Previously, a 23-year-old Salford man was arrested in Marbella on February 3 on a European arrest warrant for suspicion of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply. The 20-year-old arrested last Tuesday was also wanted on a European arrest warrant for possession of class A drugs and counterfeit currency.
