“Police officers from the Police Corps Presidium, in close cooperation with those of the Trnava Regional Police Corps Directorate, obtained information on a potential hideout being used by the wanted person,” Police Corps Presidium spokesman Martin Wäldl told the TASR newswire on October 8. “To be specific, it was a house in which Behan’s father had permanent residence. Based on this information, police action was prepared on October 7 and 8, and Behan, who was hiding in the attic of the house, was detained at 3:30 on October 8.”

Behan was then escorted to Piešťany Police Corps district headquarters before being returned to Leopoldov prison, Wäldl added.
