Cabir mobile virus author arrested?

Saturday Spanish police has arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of creating and spreading a virus that affected over 100.000 high-end mobile phones. The man was detained in the eastern coastal city of Valencia following an investigation that lasted over seven months. It is the first time that the creator of a virus that targets mobile phones was arrested in Spain. Though no name was given, I assume it was Vallez of 29a the author of the first mobile malware, Cabir.
