LONDON (AP) — Scotland Yard says officers from its specialist cybercrime unit have arrested the suspected spokesman of the Lulz Security hacking group.

In a statement Wednesday the police force says that the 19-year-old was arrested at an address in Scotland’s Shetland Islands on Wednesday. They say he is the name behind the hacker known as “Topiary,” who has given several interviews in recent weeks.

LulzSec, an offshoot of the amorphous hacking collective known as Anonymous, has claimed responsibility for a series of hacking attacks on both sides of the Atlantic.
