Brit fugitives found hiding in metal shed

0

A BRITISH couple, formerly of Mallorca, on the run from police for selling their under-age daughters to a friend for sex, have been captured living in a container shed on a farm in Southern Spain.

The man and woman, aged 54 and 59, had been living in Mallorca but fled the island after their sentencing last year for giving out their children to a man they knew, in return for money.

After spending months hunting the couple, for the offences dating back almost eight years, members of the Guardia Civil found the them living in a small shed on the edge of a farm in the district of Cártama in the province of Malaga.

The couple who had been on the run to avoid a prison sentence, identified by the police only as TLD 54 years old and BSD aged 59, both of British nationality.

The fugitive pair were arrested under a European Arrest Warrant following their conviction for the sexual abuse of minors.

Police believe they had been living in the shed for some time in order to evade justice.

A spokesman for the Guardia Civil, issued a statement that said: “The facts go back to the year 2009 when the couple offered their under-age daughters to have sexual relations with a person, known to them, in exchange for an economic benefit, the reason why they were convicted in the year 2016 for the crime of sexual abuses to minors.”

“After the sentence, those now detained fled the island of Mallorca where they lived to avoid their entry into prison, being located by agents after several months of searches.”

“The couple remained hidden during this time in a shed located on a farm on the outskirts of Cártama, Malaga.”

The couple have since appeared before a court and were remanded in prison.
