A 39-YEAR-OLD Polish national has been arrested in San Fulgencio in connection with alleged fake documentation.
According to reports, the man used six false identities to carry out a series of crimes, and there were warrants out for his arrest from three courts in Castellon and Denia – in Alicante – and Torrente in Valencia.
The detained man is also believed to be a member of drug trafficking gang and had been living in the Valencian Community for at least 10 years. The number of fake identities used enabled him to commit his crimes and evade justice…until now.
The end of the road for the man began in June this year, when the Guardia Civil based in Javea were suspicious of the documents presented when he opened a bank account and wanted to rent a car.
Collaboration with the Polish authorities showed that the person didn’t exist, and so the efforts of the Spanish investigators now concentrated on finding out his real identity.
Once they’d uncovered who he was and where he was, the arrest took place in San Fulgencio, but even then the man offered fake ID when stopped.
The man has already been sent to prison without bail and awaiting trial.
