A fugitive cybercriminal was arrested in Amsterdam on Wednesday, the police reported on Friday.

The thirty-year-old woman from Enschede was sentenced to five years in prison in 2019, but fled.

The police are still looking for a 26-year-old male co-defendant from Amsterdam.

The two suspects are said to have led a criminal organization engaged in phishing and computer intrusion.

Using e-mails, the duo lured victims to fake bank websites in order to obtain their login details.

Subsequently, the accounts of the victims were looted.

This would have earned them a total of about 1.6 million euros.

The main suspects were on trial in the court in Breda in the spring of 2019.

They were sentenced to five years in prison for their leading role in a criminal organization.

They also had to repay the victims almost 125,000 euros.

The two were not present at the verdict and fled after their conviction.

The woman was previously arrested in Spain, but managed to escape being surrendered to the Netherlands.

Both suspects will appeal the verdict.
