The 19-year-old, who was held at his family home in Wickford following a joint operation by the FBI and Scotland Yard, is currently being questioned at a London police station over a string of attacks claimed to be by the hacking group LulzSec.
He is alleged to have been in the process of attacking the website of Britain’s Serious and Organised Crime Agency (Soca) using a computer in his bedroom at the moment police raided the detached house.
Police sources said that because he was allegedly committing an offence against a UK-based website at the time he was arrested, he would have to be tried in a British court if he is charged with any offence.
