Alleged CabinCr3w member denies hacking police sites

Share this article:
A 21-year-old Ohio man pleaded innocent this week to charges he hacked into the websites of the Utah Chiefs of Police Association and the Salt Lake City Police Department to release sensitive data, which included crime tips and personal information about officers. The indictment against John Borell III suggests he committed the hacks because Utah was considering introducing an anti-graffiti law, according to reports. Authorities tracked him down through his public Twitter admissions -- he allegedly used the alias account @ItsKahuna -- and they subpoenaed his private messages. Borell is supposedly part of the CabinCr3w hacktivist group, which is linked to Anonymous. Another one of its members, Higinio Ochoa, was arrested in Texas earlier this month.
