Police arrest man suspected of attack on Dortmund soccer team's bus

German police have arrested a 28-year-old man suspected of being behind last week's attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team. Greed, not ties to international terror, is thought to have motivated the suspect.

Special police forces arrested a man on Friday they suspect was responsible for the attack on Borussia Dortmund's team bus last week. Authorities are now also looking for two possible accomplices, according to the daily "Bild." Germany's Federal Criminal Police and the Federal Prosecutors Office confirmed the arrest, which took place near the southern German city of Tübingen.

The suspect, identified by the media as Sergej W., and holding both Russian and German nationalities, was reportedly staying at the team's hotel on the day of the attack. His room provided a view of the street where the explosions later injured Dortmund player Marc Bartra and a police officer. "The explosive devices were detonated at the optimum time," prosecutors said, adding that each device was triggered by a separate wireless signal. Authorities had begun investigations against the 28-year-old suspect, late last week on 20 counts of attempted murder.

Rather than ties to international terrorism, greed is thought to have played a role in the attack that left Dortmund player Marc Bartra and a police officer injured. The suspect allegedly bought options to short sell 15,000 shares of Borussia Dortmund stock for 78,000 euros ($83,600). He would have profited from the transaction if the price for shares of the team fell. "A significant share price drop could have been expected if a player had been seriously injured or even killed as a result of the attack," prosecutors said.

1. Which part of Syria did Sergei W. immigrate from?

And why isn't the fact that this terrorist tried to pin it on ISIS with a fake letter not called out by mainstream American media?

And profiting when bad things happen to other people is Trump's business model. Trumps came from Germany. Maybe we should deport the Trumps just until we can figure this whole thing out.
