THIS is the moment police captured a senior associate of the Kinahan cartel near his Lanzarote bolthole.

Gary Vickery, 38, was filmed being handcuffed moments after his arrest at a bar on the sunshine island as he was led away to a police car.

It emerged yesterday afternoon that the self-confessed drugs criminal, a partner-in-crime of Kinahan cartel boss Thomas “Bomber" Kavanagh, is expected to be extradited to the UK within days.

It is believed he appeared before a judge via video-link. A well-placed source at the Audiencia Nacional court in Madrid said: "He was remanded in prison pending extradition after consenting to being returned to the UK"

The arrest was carried out by the same elite Civil Guard unit that detained Gerry “The Monk” Hutch in a Costa del Sol restaurant in August, with the force yesterday releasing video footage of the operation.

The same officers who ended Hutch's life on the run were filmed walking up to Vickery as he sat drinking at a table wearing blue shorts and T-shirt, flip flops and a Hugo Boss baseball cap.
