Police Raids Target Cyber-Criminals In Four Countries

Whoops! At first glance I thought that headline said the police raided Target. Although 700 police storming 175 Target store locations would have been pretty funny, this was just authorities rounding up a bunch of "globally active hackers and a variety of internet criminals."

Police have launched raids against 170 suspected cyber-criminals across Germany and in the Netherlands, France and Canada, German authorities said Wednesday, announcing the arrest of a 22-year-old chief suspect. In one of the 175 dawn raids on homes and businesses, they arrested a second suspect who was found to be in the possession of several kilograms of illegal drugs and weapons, they said in a statement.
