AU: Arrest made over police data breach

Thomas O’Byrne reports:

Detectives have made a fresh arrest as investigations continue into a major information breach at Victoria Police.

Detectives from Taskforce Keel – commissioned last month to investigate a major leak of confidential police files – announced on Friday that they had arrested a 38-year-old Seddon man.

Police have charged the man with perverting the course of justice and trafficking a commercial quantity of amphetamines.
