Or possibly a scare tactic so the real offender will relax.

The FBI has identified a teenager as the author of a damaging 
infection unleashed on the Internet and plans to arrest him early
Friday, a U.S. 
official confirmed Thursday.

It always worries me when law enforcement send out a press statement
that they are going to arrest a particular individual "in the future".
Where is he "now" and why won't he remove himself to "somewhere a long
way away", overnight? Obviously, there is something more complex
happening here.
