    One of LulzSec's purported kingpins is now in police custody. Topiary, apparently a 19-year-old Scottish kid, was arrested by the UK's Metropolitan Police Service's Police Central e-Crime Unit today, and now en route to London. Bad news for LulzSec.

    And he's not alone, according to a statement released by the Metropolitan Police:


    A residential address in Lincolnshire is also being searched. A 17-year-old male is being interviewed under caution in connection with the inquiry. He has not been arrested.

    Today's operation is linked to PCeU's ongoing investigation into network intrusions and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against a number of international business and intelligence agencies by what is believed to be the same hacking group.

    Anonymous IRC supporters, in the meantime, remain skeptical (or in denial):

    heyguise: do not be afraid
    DMT: it's probably not topiary
    raided: you have to confirm this
    DMT: topiary said he would disappear for a short while
    DMT: on twitter a few weeks ago I think
    DMT: they've got nothing


    The striking arrest follows last week's capture of TFlow, another major LulzSec operator.

    Update: Guardian journalist James Ball notes that Topiary wiped out his entire Twitter feed, with the exception of the above, defiant message—perhaps anticipating his own arrest.[/p]

    So finally it's over? xD

    I hope not. These people have generated more lulz than the world has seen in a long time.

    Of course, PS3 owners might disagree...

    topiary was the public voice of lulzsec, the top boss is/was Sabu, and he's still at large, although obviously not in a good situation with most of his friends gone

    LOL This sounds bad but someone else will take up the mantle. There are too many member for the Government to take action against. Arresting leaders is not good enough in this case.

    Yay, they caught the leader.

    You arrest enough people doing something and eventually the others doing it will become too scared to do it as well.

    The PS3 scene is a pretty fantastic example of that. It boomed, and then crashed into the ocean like a month later as sony filed charges against a bunch of people. They didn't arrest EVERYONE, and not everyone stopped...but the scene slowed waaay the hell down because of it.

    OH No! Now what will they do? Lock a site for a few hours and bitch about it? I can't wait for the rest of those guys to get arrested.
