Did ‘The Monk’ just get tired of running?
While insiders debate his motives, last week’s capture of the murder suspect is a big win for gardaí
The arrest of Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch in Spain following four months on the run came as a result of gardaí knowing where the crime boss was hiding out.
Well-placed sources told the Sunday Independent that intelligence received several weeks ago provided information linking the 58-year-old to the Costa del Sol.
Hutch was arrested in the popular resort of Fuengirola — where the Kinahan cartel once had a base — on Thursday afternoon. He had been living there for much of the past four months, it is understood.
