The Civil Guard of Alicante has arrested in Altea two British men of 76 and 51 years, father and son fugitives of the justice, who fled in the month of January from the United Kingdom to Spain, after having been sentenced by the British justice, to a prison sentence of 32 months and another of 5 years, respectively, for economic and financial crimes. Apparently they had swindled a million pounds in the UK as false real estate developers.
The investigations showed that both could be residing in Altea, trying to bring the same high level of life they had in England, at the cost of the money defrauded.
It was in that municipality where the Civil Guard agents of Alicante, after setting up a search device, stopped them when they were driving in a high-end vehicle and English registration, by urbanization Altea Hills.
After his arrest, they have been placed at the disposal of the National Court, competent in extradition matters.
