A 33-year-old Albanian national who had absconded during a furlough after being jailed for drug dealing in July 2012 has been arrested, police said Wednesday.

The convict was apprehended on Tuesday, according to police sources who said a search of his house turned up quantities of heroin and other drugs.

When stopped, the 33-year-old is said to have given false information to the police but a search determined his identity and he was returned to Larissa Prison.
