Lizard Squad probably shouldn't have bragged about being impossible to track following its cyberattacks against the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

According to both The Daily Dot and a Thames Valley Police report, law enforcement arrested alleged group member Vinnie Omari on December 29th -- not for the gaming network attacks themselves, but for stealing from PayPal accounts. Omari says that the cops haven't pressed formal charges (they released him on bail), but they also confiscated all his computing devices and storage to gather evidence.
