Col. Levent Gülmen, who was attending a ceremony in İzmir's Foça district with civilian clothes, was detained by soldiers and taken to Foça courthouse.
Gülmen was previously arrested within the case, but was later released in July 2010.
Suspects in the Cage case are accused of involvement in plans to stage false-flag attacks against Istanbul's tiny non-Muslim communities, notably Armenians - including abductions, arsons and bombings - and create the impression that AKP policies encouraged Islamist extremism and violence in Turkey.
