A Scot has appeared in court after being arrested in the Canary Islands on an international arrest warrant for drugs and serious organised crime offences.
The 42-year-old man was taken into custody by officers from Police Scotland’s Fugitive Active Search Team on August 19 this year.
The warrant was issued for his arrest for drugs and serious organised crime offences committed in Scotland and extradited from Spain.
He appeared before Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday where he faced charges, including two under the Misuse of Drugs act.
He made no plea and was committed for further examination.
He has been remanded in custody to await his next appearance in court.
Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Livingstone said: “We are grateful for the co-operation of our national and international law enforcement partners including the National Crime Agency and Spanish National Police in arresting this fugitive.”
