An off-duty policeman rushing to the aid of a woman in Ioannina on Monday subsequently arrested a would-be purse-snatcher, who turned out to be 33-year-old Albanian fugitive.
Police also accused the man of breaking into a small church on the isle of Ioannina's lake days ago and removing 822 euros from collection boxes.

The man was wanted since May 2006 when he escaped from a prison farm near Hania, Crete.
