Spanish police Wednesday arrested Manuel Charlin, a once powerful drug baron who headed up a notoriously violent family clan in the northwestern region of Galicia, in a major cocaine operation.Charlin is the latest Galician drug baron to have been detained after Sito Minanco, another gangster, was arrested in February on suspicion of trying to reimpose himself in the cocaine trade.Charlin was one of those, at the head of a notorious family clan known as the "Charlines".According to Carretero, Charlin was born in poverty and started a seafood company when he was very young which he financed with contraband penicillin, copper and alcohol from nearby Portugal.He soon moved into the illegal trade of tobacco and became the first in Galicia to enter drug trafficking – hashish and then cocaine.
