New South Wales Police have arrested a 23-year-old woman in connection to a case of theft involving over $450,000 worth of Ripple cryptocurrency. The theft incident occurred in January when 100,000 XRP were illegally removed from the online wallet of a crypto owner.
In January, a cryptocurrency owner reported a breach of his email account to New South Wales Police command. According to the victim, the hack happened in December and he temporarily lost access to his email account in January. On regaining access, the victim realized that the hackers also gained access to his cryptocurrency wallet. 100,000 XRP units were missing from his e-wallet, leaving him with a near-zero balance.
