British fugitive had 75 false identities
A Brit arrested on the Costa del Sol for a string of heists was found to have 75 false identities, police have revealed.
The British fugitive also now faces prosecution for bribery after offering police officers 500 euros to let him go!
The man, whose age or identity has not been revealed, was wanted in connection with robberies on armoured vans.
A European Order of Detention and Delivery had been issued by the UK.
He was arrested by chance when police were carrying out routine checks of cars in Marbella. Paperwork he handed over to the officers did not tally with their records and it came to light that he was wanted by the UK authorities.
He was found to be in possession of 75 different false identities and faces charges for document falsification as well as bribery, robbery and the illicit possession of weapons and explosives.
