A TORREVIEJA man has been arrested by the Guardia Civil for his role in stealing a three point five million euro yacht from Mallorca, which ended up in Turkey.

The Hungarian national was detained in Torrevieja, after an international operation saw four people arrested in Turkey, whilst a trio were nabbed in Mallorca.

Operation Tekne was launched by the Guardia and their European counterparts to track down the gang, which produced fake documents and a new name for the boat before trying to sell it.

The Guardia said that more arrests could be made in an investigation that is still open.
