A hacker in a group that discovered the AT&T iPad-related flaw was 
arrested following the execution of an FBI search warrant of his home in 
Arkansas on Tuesday, authorities told CNET.

Andrew Auernheimer, 24, was being held in Washington County Detention 
Center in Fayetteville, Ark., according to Lt. Anthony Foster of the 
Washington County Sheriff's office in that state. The drugs were found 
during the execution of the warrant, said Lt. Mike Perryman, of the 
Fayetteville Police Department. However, Perryman could not say what 
prompted the warrant.

Auernheimer, who goes by the name "Escher" and the hacker handle "Weev," 
faces four felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and 
one misdemeanor possession charge, Foster said. The drugs included 
cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and schedule 2 and 3 pharmaceuticals, he said.

In March, Auernheimer was arrested for giving a fake name to law 
enforcement officers responding to a parking complaint in Fayetteville, 
Perryman said.
