Spain's most wanted drug lord turns himself in a week after appearing in hedonistic music video
Spainâs 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 TejÃ³n, the 39-year-old leader of the Los CastaÃ±as drug gang, delivered himself to officers in the town of La Linea de ConcepciÃ³n early on Wednesday morning after almost two years on the run.
Also known as âIscoâ, 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.
TejÃ³nâs 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 TejÃ³nâs appearance grew.
In it, TejÃ³n and Clase A are seen getting out of a Bentley Continental, a car with a starting price of more than Â£150,000, before partying with bikini-clad women and bottles of champagne on a bed and in a swimming pool.Source: Google News Spain | Netizen 24 Spain
