Motive of 28-year-old suspect financial, not terror-related, according to public prosecutor's office.

(AFP) German police on Friday arrested the suspected perpetrator of a bomb attack on Borussia Dortmund's team bus, the public prosecutor's office said, indicating his motive was financial and not terror-related.

Anti-terror police working on behalf of the federal prosecutor's office "have arrested a 28-year-old German-Russian national, Sergej W.," a statement said, indicating the suspect was hoping to profit from a drop in the football team's share price as a result of the attack.
