It’s only been a few days since the massive Grand Theft Auto 6 gameplay leak, but in that time we’ve seen parent company Take-Two’s stock value fall.

Now an alleged suspect has been arrested — or, to put it in appropriate GTA terms, busted. London Police have “arrested a 17-year-old on suspicion of hacking,” as announced on the force’s Twitter account. “He remains in police custody,” its tweet reads.

On its face, this arrest might not seem related to the Rockstar hacking incident that resulted in the leaked gameplay, but it’s easy to draw a line between the two.

Journalist Matthew Keys claims to have a source that links the 17-year-old male to hacking group Lapsus$, which is the group associated with the Rockstar break-in.
