From handsets to handcuffs as cops arrest suspect

Security for virtualized datacentres

A man has been arrested after several high-value prototype handsets were swiped from Sony Ericsson’s offices in Lund, Sweden.

According to online reports, more than a dozen pre-production phones were nicked from the firm’s labs there earlier this week.

Police subsequently raided the home of a 35-year-old man also based in Sweden, where they found the pilfered prototypes, which have an estimated total value of SKR 750,000 ($89,000/£61,000/€67,000).

Paul Nilson, a spokesperson for Lund police, said that Sony Ericsson suspected someone within the company and, when cops checked the employee pass control system, they discovered that the unnamed man had used his pass at the time of the theft.

The suspect has been charged with aggravated theft. ®
