A yet to be officially named member of Lizard Squad has been arrested over claims of online fraud. The individual is believed to be 22-year-old Vinnie Omari, and is in connection to money stolen from PayPal accounts.

“The arrest is in connection with an ongoing investigation into cyber-fraud offences which took place between 2013 and August 2014 during which victims reported funds being stolen from their PayPal accounts,” Thames Valley police said in a statement on behalf of SEROCU.”

Brian Krebs of KrebsOnSecurity says that this is Vinnie, with him posting an image of his supposed bail notice.

Lizard Squad has claimed responsibility for a string of attacks upon Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, culminating in a massive outage over Christmas Day. The group has sparked outrage online for its supposed DDoS attacks. Last week it was reported that the FBI is investigating.
