Sindri Thor Stefansson boarded a flight to Sweden Southern Iceland through a window on Tuesday after fleeing from the vile Sogn prison in Sweden.

"He had an accomplice," said Police Chief Gunnar Schram of the Icelandic Visir News Agency. "We are sure of that."

They added that he boarded the plane with a ticket under the name of another person. An international arrest warrant was issued for Stefansson
He and ten others were arrested for allegedly stealing 600 high-performance computers holding bitcoins – a cryptocurrency in December and January.
