MegaUpload owner found hiding in safe room with sawed-off shotgun (Digital Trends)

Digital Trends - Since the closure of file-sharing site MegaUpload and the following Anonymous attack on federal and music industry sites, details regarding the arrest of MegaUpload founder Kim “Dotcom� Schmitz have been made public. German national, 38-year-old Schmitz was spending the day in his country mansion hideaway when dozens of police officers with helicopters swarmed the home. Schmitz then engaged several electronic locks throughout the household and refused to allow police entry into the $23 million mansion in Coatesville, New Zealand. As police officers forced their way into the home, Schmitz barricaded himself in the mansion’s safe room. After police sliced through the safe room door, they found him next to a sawed-off shotgun.
