LulzSec hacking suspect 'Topiary' arrested

Police arrest 19-year-old man in Shetland Islands who is alleged to be involved in hacker attacks on law enforcement agencies

Police said the 19-year-old arrested in the Shetland Islands was LulzSec hacking suspect 'Topiary'

The international hunt for computer hackers linked to attacks on law enforcement agencies has led to the arrest of a teenager in the Shetland Islands.

Officers from the Metropolitan police's e-crime unit arrested a 19-year-old at his home on Wednesday as part of a global hunt for hackers connected to the LulzSec and Anonymous groups.

Scotland Yard said the suspect uses the online nickname "Topiary", who has been presented as a spokesman for the LulzSec collective and one of the most prominent names in the so-called "hacktivist" movement.

The teenager is the third person to be arrested in the UK in connection with attacks on the electronics giant Sony, as well as assaults on US government agencies.

A 16-year-old from South London was arrested and released on bail last week. Essex teenager Ryan Cleary, 19, is due to appear before a London court on 30 August charged with a number of attacks on websites.

Police also said a 17-year-old male is being interviewed under caution, but was not arrested, in connection with the hacking inquiry. A residential address in Lincolnshire is being searched.
