Police in Greece say they arrested a German citizen aged 35 who is wanted for fraud and other cybercrime. He has three warrants from Germany, one international.
The Thessaloniki police’s organized crime and human trafficking division announced Saturday they had found over 1,000 photos and videos of child pornography in the suspect’s cellphone when he was arrested Thursday.
He was a Greek national who has been living in Greece since 2019. The Greek prosecutor will be bringing him up next week to face charges of impersonating a German as well as a Greek officer.

The suspect, whose mother was Greek, had been showing what proved to be a fake German police officer’s ID on across northern Greece, claiming he was a part of a special unit investigating networks of pedophiles. A police uniform belonging to a Greek cop was also worn by the suspect, who checked in at a hospital recently.
Police say they also found in the suspect’s car and home two license plates purporting to be from German state vehicles, at least one of which was fake, as well as fake salary payment statements from German state authorities.
