The suspected mastermind behind the theft of 600 bitcoin mining rigs in Iceland has escaped from prison and fled to Sweden, police said.

Sindri Thor Stefansson escaped through a window of the low-security Sogn prison in rural southern Iceland. Guards only realized Stefansson was gone after he had boarded the Icelandair flight bound for Stockholm’s Arlanda airport at Keflavik Airport.
