Many accused offenders pre-arrange, often through laywers, times to 
surrender themselves to authorities. This is a Good Thing. A lot less
dangerous to both law enforcement personnel and the accused, not to 
mention a lot cheaper.

However, none of the artciles I have seen mention whether "teekid" 
surrendered himself or was picked up "off the street." But he must have
known the Feds were on to him already. They questioned him, searched
his house, and seized several of his computers on the 19th.
