Suspected poker heist initiator arrested

Police have arrested a man German authorities suspect of initiating a brazen raid on a poker tournament in Berlin nearly three months ago.
Berlin police and prosecutors said the 31-year-old _ identified only as Mohammed Abou-C. in line with German privacy laws _ was arrested early Friday as he was driving through the capital.
An arrest warrant for the man was issued on Thursday.
Authorities say attackers armed with a revolver and a machete stormed the poker tournament at a downtown hotel March 6 and made off with (EURO)242,000 ($298,000) in jackpot money.
Five people _ the four suspected attackers and a man believed to have organized the heist _ were arrested in March.
