The man is associated with a crime ring connected to a 16-tonne shipment of cocaine seized in Hamburg on February 12 last year, one of the largest drug deliveries ever caught in Europe, police.hu said.
The German police turned to the Hungarian authorities through Europol’s ENFAST system, when they discovered the man was hiding in Hungary, the website said.
As the man was considered armed and dangerous, the Hungarian police cooperated with the anti-terrorism unit to arrest him in an apartment in downtown Budapest, police.hu said.
