A man reputed to be the leader of an international hacking ring worked in the U.K. offices of Siemens Communications, according to a statement released by the company.

Lynn Htun was arrested April 29 by U.K. Metropolitan Police who recognized him at the InfoSec computer security show in London after he failed to appear in Guildford Crown Court in England, on forgery charges, according to a U.K. Metropolitan Police spokesman.

Police in Surrey, where the forgery charge originated, didn't immediately respond to questions.
