Fabian Thylmann was arrested last week on a German warrant and is currently in custody in Belgium, where he lives. Ulrich Bremer, a spokesman for prosecutors in Cologne, said Tuesday that several properties including his home were searched last week.

Bremer says it isn't clear when Thylmann might be extradited to Germany. He could not say whether anyone else is under investigation or give further details of the case.
