Police had been searching for him in Spain.

Acklom is wanted by police for allegedly stealing GBP 850,000 from his fiancée Carolyn Woods four years ago.

The UK’s Sky News has tracked him down to Geneva. Correspondents believe that Acklom may think he’s safe in Switzerland as it is a non-EU country it doesn’t recognize the European arrest warrant. But Switzerland has an extradition treaty with the UK and Geneva police can arrest him.

Sky News says he was recognized by chance by another victim of financial fraud and his picture sent to police in the UK.
