An Algerian-born French national wanted on an international arrest warrant for high-profile art heist in France was arrested Thursday in Marrakech, according to security sources.

Interpol’s database revealed that the 37-year-old French national is an internationally wanted criminal under a red notice, issued by the Central Office for National Security in Paris, the same source pointed out, adding that this warrant was issued in connection with a prison sentence handed down by the French judiciary.

The defendant is allegedly involved in a criminal gang that perpetrated a high-profile art heist in 2018, stealing three valuable art pieces, including one belonging to a renowned French painter.

The suspect was placed in police custody pending extradition proceedings, while the French authorities were notified of the arrest with a view to sending the extradition file.
