Authorities in the Dominican Republic say they have extradited a fugitive multimillionaire fraudster to Britain.

Police said Saturday that Michael Brown was flown to Spain, where he would be turned over to British officials.

Brown was arrested in January in the popular Dominican tourist town of Punta Cana. Police say he had been living in the Dominican Republic under the name of Darren Nally.

Brown was accused of duping four clients out of $62 million (40 million pounds). He was sentenced in absentia to seven years in jail in 2008 after he was convicted of fraud.

Dominican police say he was also charged with defrauding people in Punta Cana but the alleged victims dropped their complaints so he could be extradited.
