Immigration police have arrested a Belgian man who is wanted in his home country for trade in contraband and growing marijuana, police said.
Pol Col Sanchai said Mr Lagrou was wanted in Belgium for growing marijuana and was found to have accumulated wealth of about 25 milllion euros (about B1 billion) from trade in contraband.
He escaped arrest in Belgium and fled to Thailand, leading to his being apprehended in Phuket at the request of the Belgian authorities.
Mr Lagrou is being detained for further legal proceedings.
