Spanish police say a man arrested this month on suspicion of supplying arms used in an attack on a Paris kosher supermarket last year has been sent back to France.

The national police said Tuesday in a statement that Frenchman Antoine Denevi boarded a jet with French police to return to his country and face charges of trafficking in arms and explosives and membership in a criminal organization.

Denevi was arrested on April 12 in the southern Spanish beach town of Rincon de la Victoria.

In an appearance in Madrid's National Court, he denied selling weapons to attackers.

Spain's Interior Ministry has said Denevi left France for Spain after the January 2015 attack.
