Ben Fellows, of Redstone Farm Road, Olton, who is understood to have been living on the Spanish island of Lanzarote in recent months, is due to appear before Southwark Crown Court on December 29.
The 40 year-old was arrested at Birmingham International Airport in the early hours of Monday morning by officers from West Midlands Police on behalf of Metropolitan Police.
