52 Year old Man was arrested in News International hacking probe

An unnamed 52 year old suspect was arrested by British Police in Milton Keynes for computer hacking related to the phone hacking fiasco committed by the now defunct News of the World and its parent company News International.

The arrest came under the force's Operation Tuleta, an investigation into computer hacking, which runs alongside the Operation Weeting phone-hacking probe.

The suspect is in custody at a Thames Valley Police station and questioned for offenses under the UK Computer Misuse Act. He is the first suspect arrested under Scotland Yard's Operation Tuleta.

"Operation Tuleta is investigating a number of allegations regarding breach of privacy, received by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) since January 2011, which fell outside the remit of Operation Weeting, including computer hacking," the spokesman added.

Operation Tuleta was set up earlier of this year to expand the investigation into the hacking scandal, focusing on allegations that malware was used to break into computers and gather information that could be used in newspaper articles.
