Run and hide, asshole. Run. And. Hide.

Look for a new buddy cop flick coming this summer, starring Dimon and Preet Bharara, 'cause the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York is thisclose to nabbing the guys who stole 83 million JPMC customers’ personal information last year, and Dimon is presumably going to finish them, with this fists.

Federal authorities investigating the attack at JPMorgan are increasingly confident that a criminal case will be filed against the hackers in the coming months, said people briefed on the investigation. Law enforcement officials believe that several of the suspects are “gettable,” meaning that they live in a country with which the United States has an extradition treaty. That would not include countries like Russia.

Indictments and arrests would be a notable victory for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan. In contrast, there have been no criminal charges in a December 2013 breach at Target, where payment card data for 40 million customers was stolen, along with the personal information of 70 million customers, or in the major attacks against eBay and Home Depot involving hundreds of millions more customers last year.
