New Arrest In Auschwitz Sign Theft
February 12, 2010
The sign had been taken down, cut into pieces and hidden in nearby wilderness by a group of men believed to be looking to fund a terrorist attack in Sweden.
Five Polish men have formerly been arrested for the crime, and the pieces retrieved.
But now Swedish-born Anders Anders Hogstrom has been arrested and is facing possible charges.
It is not clear what part he had in the operation.
Hogstrom, who is a former leader within the neo-Nazi movement, has denied any part in the sign theft and is said to be cooperating with police.
