Turkish Crime Family Member Arrested

British cops have busted a 20 year old who is thought to have been one of the members of the so called Turkish Crime Family who was behind the threat to wipe millions of iPhones. Motherboard has the details:

“National Crime Agency officers arrested a 20 year-old male and searched an address in London, N10 on Tuesday 28 March in relation to suspected Computer Misuse Act and extortion offences,” an NCA spokesperson wrote in an email after being approached by Motherboard with a copy of the warrant.

If these charges can be proven in court, this 20 year old is facing a lot of time in the big house. Extortion convictions in the UK carry double digit years in jail. Thus he might be prepared to spill the beans about his co-conspirators to avoid having someone named “Bubba” becoming his bunkmate.
