A Swede has been arrested in Los Angeles in possession of 30 kilos of narcotics.

Swedish authorities already had a warrant out for the arrest of Patrik Schill, 38, who is wanted in connection with five cases of fraud.

Malmö prosecutor Michael Hansson told Sydsvenskan last month that he had been in contact with US marshals to try to locate the man.

Schill was arrested on 20th October in Redondo Beach in Los Angeles. If convicted he faces up to 30 years in prison.
