Brit arrested in Spain over gang murder in Thailand
SPANISH police have arrested a convicted British fraudster wanted in Thailand over the murder of another expat.
Toby James Nelhams, 45, was held on an international arrest warrant as he landed at Malaga Airport.
He is suspected of ordering the murder of a Brit described as the kingpin of a “Wolf of Wall Street”-style boiler room gang operation.
Nelhams had previously been linked to the killing of fraudster Tony Kenway, although he has never been prosecuted.
Dad-of-four Kenway, 39, was blasted in the head in a gangland-style hit as he sat in his Porsche in Pattaya, south Thailand, in January last year.
Nelhams – one of three men sought over the shooting – was arrested last year but never put on trial.
A police spokesman confirmed: “The fugitive was caught when he tried to enter Spain through Malaga Airport.”
Nelhams, from North London, is thought to have already appeared before an extradition judge, although the result is not yet clear.
