Spain's most wanted drug lord turns himself in a week after appearing in hedonistic music video

Spain’s most wanted drug lord on Wednesday turned himself in to police in Andalusia, days after making a daring appearance in a music video for a Cuban reggaeton singer.

Francisco Tejón, the 39-year-old leader of the Los Castañas drug gang, delivered himself to officers in the town of La Linea de Concepción early on Wednesday morning after almost two years on the run.

Also known as “Isco”, the kingpin and his brother Antonio are alleged to have amassed a 30 million euro fortune smuggling cannabis from Morocco across the Bay of Gibraltar to southern Spain, one of the key trafficking gateways into Europe.

Tejón’s surprise surrender follows the release of the video for the track Candela by the Spain-based Cuban artist Clase A (Class A), which featured the then-fugitive enjoying a hedonistic lifestyle.

The video was posted to YouTube earlier this month and amassed 50,000 views on YouTube before being replaced by an audio-only version as the controversy over Tejón’s appearance grew.

In it, Tejón and Clase A are seen getting out of a Bentley Continental, a car with a starting price of more than £150,000, before partying with bikini-clad women and bottles of champagne on a bed and in a swimming pool.
