Blighty's Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) has arrested an individual in connection with the closure of UK music exchange site rnbxclusive.com, an agency spokesperson told The Reg.

In a statement, SOCA cops said they had taken action against the website as part of a criminal investigation and stated that the person was cuffed on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud. The site was hauled offline last night.

The crime-gang-busting plod said:

Much of the music offered for download by the rnbxclusive.com website was illegally obtained from artists, leading the industry to attribute losses of approximately £15m per year to the site’s activity.

Rumours that the rnbxclusive.com takedown was a hacker's prank were spread by the site's Facebook fans, but are untrue. Rnbxclusive.com has over a quarter of a million fans on the social network. ®
